Walking Group - 19th October 2012

A Great Day Out

We walk from Bondi to Bronte beach

As usual the group met at Dapto Station for the trip to Sydney. We travelled to Martin Place where we caught a 380 bus in Elizabeth St to Bondi Beach. This was done in preference to going to Bondi Junction and catching a bus from there - experience had taught us that from there the bus would be crowded.

Why would the bus be crowded? We were going to see Sculpture by the Sea, that wonderful art exhibition in a beautiful setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It had only opened the day before.

We arrived in good time and made our way to the exhibition and spent a fascinating time looking at the many exhibits in the main 'arena' in Marks Park on top of the cliffs. We then followed the path to Tamarama Beach pausing to examine the many art works displayed along the way. At Tamarama we said goodbye to the sculpture and continued on along the coastal walk to Bronte Beach where we only waited a few minutes for a bus to take us to Bondi Junction.

At the rail/bus interchange we had sufficient time to grab a bite to eat before catching the train back to Dapto. What a terrific day out, wouldn't be dead for quids!

The walking group is still looking for a new leader to co-ordinate our activities, so please, if you are interested in this role, put your hand up you will be made very welcome. In the meantime our next walk will be announced at the club's meeting on the 25th October, perhaps you have a suggestion? be sure to speak up.
