Bondi Beach, the Edge of the World

I like these two pictures my friend Abhi took of me at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia.

Sitting on the edge of the largest water ocean in the known universe.

Climbing where they don't want you to climb...

And here are three pictures I took:

This is a bench on the strip of restaurants and shops along the beach.

A not-very-compelling picture of some neat swimming pools.

And this is a great big rock.

We did this beach walk hike, which lasted a couple of hours and passed through another couple of lovely (and less crowded) beaches. Everybody on the trail (and their dog) was attractive; it was a parallel universe. We went up high to a summit covered in flowers and succulent plants with purple flowers that hung like curtains, to an observation deck where you can see humpback whales at the right time of year. Alas, we saw no whales.
