15 November, 2015… we’ve made it to Gunamatta Bay in Cronulla.

With only a few weekends left before we leave for holidays, we finished our year long walk from Sydney’s northern most beach to the southern most, and all the bays and beaches and everything in between. Has been a lot of fun. From warm and beautiful through to hot and sweaty, wet, cold and miserable, a couple of hundred swims, a couple of hundred kms, discovering suburbs and beaches and parts of Sydney we never knew existed. And to finish ogling at waterfront houses along Gunamatta Bay and a lovely breakfast at The Nuns’ Pool and great coffee in Cronulla was a great way to finish.

I didn’t think to record this trip using a blog; sadly, I just recorded each week through facebook.

Suffice to say we had a great time. Notable weekends included:

  • Seeing the two houses of our dreams…
  • the walk around Long Reef golf course down to Dee Why
  • the beautiful walk around the point south of Dee Why
  • the nicest rock pool of the year at Fairlight at the back of Manly
  • breakfast at Ripples Cafe at Chowder Bay (and that whole area around Clifton Gardens)
  • the walk around Cremorne Point – what a beautiful secret place that is!
  • Rose Bay to Vaucluse Bay – a beautiful forshore walk
  • the beatiful job they’ve done at The Gap
  • tripping over Kurnell – a suburb much of which feels like it’s trapped in the 60’s
  • discovering that 5kms from a major Sydney beach, you have to be wary of 4WDs on the beach!
    and finally
  • how beautiful is The Esplanade walk from Cronulla, past beautiful Shelly Park, around the point down to Gunnamatta Bay.

A cracker of a year!
