So after a not too heavy night we wake up fresh and ready to enjoy the bank holiday Monday. First half of the day is spent chilling and organising more NZ stuff and then rest is a trip to Watson Bay. It takes a little while to get there as need 2 buses and it’s public holiday services, but it’s nice to see a new place.
We meet Ali’s friend Taryn, who I met last time too and is nice. It is only a small town with a ferry area to go to town, a cute couple of restaurants and the hotel, which is where we head. It looks fancy and well done up, a bit similar to the coogee pavilion. There is a DJ and singer, who is really good and I actually thought was part of the music rather than live. I imagine this place would have been great for a sunday session day, especially as it is all outside so when the weather is nice. It’s just far away, which is only thing.
We end up ordering food and I go for the fish as it is meant to be best and they have a bambino version for $10 so good value. It’s not so busy there, so don’t need to wait too long.
We stay until the sunset and it looks so beautiful over the little bay, with the boats and expensive looking houses looking very colourful with pinks and orange.
Near the bus stop there are some cliffs that look cool, although Ali says it’s a big suicide spot. Sitting on the steps from here you can see the sydneu bridge in the background and city skyline.
Eventually the bus arrives, but it isn’t direct to coogee so we need to jump off about 30mins in at place called Edgecliff station to get train to Bondi Junction. Sticking just to bus would take forever as already it’s been slow going through Double Tree, another expensive area with lots of nice restaurants.
By the time we get home after Bondi Junction it is about 9pm and both feeling shattered. Luckily I can have bit of a sleep in too as all that is on the agenda for tomorrow is a day of shopping visiting Westfield and Kmart to buy warm clothes for NZ, a carry on bag and confirming hostels and tours.
