Bondi Beach


One of the most memorable days of our trip was the day we did the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk. I had to Google that to know what it was called. Bondi Beach, according to every Aussie who talked to me about it, is the iconic beach of Australia. They likened it to Venice Beach in California. There is a six kilometer path from Bondi to Coogee beach and the views are incredible. 

Chris, Priscilla, me and Mom as we began our trek. I think Chris wanted to run the whole thing but some of us might have told her she was crazy. 







Get in shape, girl!


We stopped at a little cafe along the way. 


This is Priscilla's veggie sandwich. It looked hilarious and very un-Texan. I think she liked it though.




Australia has some very intense spiders. And snakes, but thank God we didn't see any of those. 



I had to get my feet in the water at the end. It wouldn't have been right not to. 


The water was cold, y'all. COLD. Chris said they can tell who the tourists are because they're the only ones in it. Ha!

Well look at you go! You are in a blogging fury this week! :) I love it.

My husband wants to go to Australia some day. It's the spiders, snakes and crocs that hold off my excitement. :)

It looks beautiful though. And I can tell ya'll had such a blast.

LOVE the time spent with your mother and I also so much appreciate your phase of life. I have a 4 and 1/2 year old, a 2 and a 1/2 year old, and a 5 month old...as you say yourself...CRAZY!! But awesome right? Thank you for your sentiments and for sharing life with us. May God continue to bless you and your family and may your children experience the impact, first hand, that God has had on your life. He is SO good isn't He?

Loving all your posts and pics from Australia! Know just what you mean about having to get your feet in the water. My hubby and I went to Lake Erie this past weekend on a little anniversary trip and I just had to walk on the beach barefoot. That water was COLD! I just don't feel like I've really been to a beach though if I don't dip my toes. (-: Great to see you blogging again--have missed your newsy little updates.
