Bondi Beach

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 20 January 2007 | Views [889]

Bondi Beach is one of the most fun places to hang out and just people watch, and “sun bake” as they call it in Australia (quite appropriately so on the hot beaches here). The cafes here line the main beach road, and there’s an amazing ocean pool near the surf lifesaving club on the far south end of the beach that’s a great treat. The water is frigid for this time of the year, unseasonably cold at 17 degrees celsius. Can’t surf without a “steamer” (Australian for wetsuit). Spending the day at the beach in Bondi brought back all kinds of fun memories of time spent in this great town.

One thing that really impresses us is how clean the beaches are. The sand is free of seaweed and trash, in fact, you’d be hard pressed to find any trash around on the streets or beaches. The water is an amazing color blue and crystal clear. Australia in general, does a fabulous job of maintaining their precious resource, their coastline.

A special treat this evening was meeting up with my former boss, and life long mentor Liz. She’s set up a successful consulting/coaching practice, and is always so on top of all the new research and techniques out there. We even talked about bridging coaching with meditative practices and yoga... what a healthy approach! After an amazing dinner, we set up a few features for her skype account so we can talk when we finally have a wireless connection
