Feeling Blue: Bondi Icebergs

If I had to sum up an Australian Summer in pictures, this would probably be it. It’s hard to top the incredible views you get out over the ocean when visiting Bondi Icebergs at Sydney’s Bondi Beach. It’s also incredibly hard to walk past and not take a snap of these iconic pools when strolling on by (you sparkly little devil, Bondi!).

A year ago when Tim and I had a short visit to Sydney over a long weekend, the city had just experienced one of the worst storms in years. The beach was shut and therefore deserted due to dangerous conditions in the water, the sand was scattered with bobcats trying to excavate the beach back into place after being washed up and swept away onto the nearby paths, and it wasn’t exactly the vibrant and glorious spot I had been describing to Tim for weeks before our trip. It’s a bad habit of mine, the whole talking up venues/restaurants/places of interest well in advance before we take a trip anywhere and therefore increasing our chances of a disaster at least ten fold. This was one such time.

BUUUT for our most recent visit the weather gods had clearly had a good hard think about things from the previous year and were now 100% on team Denton. Now this was the Bondi I had been bragging about before we left and it was a real treat to enjoy it on such a gorgeous day! As we face a cold snap this week in Brisbane where temperatures are rumoured to not move above double digits, it’s scenes like this that my pale skin and I really start missing the most.

Whatever your plans may your weekend be blue and beautiful friends x

    My pale skin is really missing the summer as well. I went to Sydney not too long ago but didn’t make it down to Bondi to see the famous icebergs. They’re next on my list though!

      Put it on the summer must do list and make a whole day of it! I’ve been to Bondi so much but have never spent a day on the beach/swimming. Always just hanging around, eating haha.

    These are such gorgeous pictures! Even though I’m from Sydney, it’s always fun to see the places I know and love from a visitor’s perspective 🙂

      Isn’t it! I love when people visit and point things out to me that have been there all along and I never noticed. We just get used to what is around us I suppose. Lucky you…. you can visit the pools any time then 🙂

      I am the same, I’m sitting here with frozen fingers just waiting for warmer weather to return! Oh it’s great isn’t it, with the beach water splashing into it x
