Someone once told me that all the beaches in Australia look the same in one way or other, but I disagree. Each beach I’ve seen here has its own unique characteristics and vibes. And in such comfortable early spring weather, who could say no to the fresh outdoor air, sea waves and blue skies?
Sculptures and crowds aside, the eastern coast of Sydney is really a beautiful place.
It was a hot day, and my feet started to hurt after conquering just a portion of the coastal walk. So, I did not get to see all the sculptures after all.
A normal coastline, embellished by works of (mostly) man-made art. In actuality, Nature does not need Man to make it more beautiful – Without Man, Nature has and will continue to flourish. Despite interpretations that the artworks are interactions with the environment, it seems that it is the simplicity and space of Nature which has breathed life into the works, more so than the other way round. And it was that encompassing quality of Nature which I admired the most in this experience.
I remember searching the internet for interesting things to do in Sydney towards the end of last year, and this was one of the events which came up. Am so glad I got to visit it this year 🙂
After my numerous solo excursions, it was nice to touch base with a familiar face and soul, have meaningful conversations, and share beautiful experiences with someone I know again.
