Wonderland

You probably already know this, but Tamarama, just over the hill from Bondi used to be an amusement park based on Coney Island (1906 it opened). A rollercoaster ran from one side of the bay to the other. Mad huh. Interest in the park waned and swimmers protested so it closed in 19011.

Ok ‘Nuf of the history lesson.

Today Tamarama was attracting the current ENE wind swell, breaking around 1-2 foot. It looked pretty terrible to surf but delightful to swim! The water is chilly, you’ll feel alive post dip.

For the past few weeks we’ve had a small pop up exhibition at the Westfield Warringah Mall (near Country Road). Seen it? Some of my best aerial images shot over the Northern Beaches are on show. This Thursday I am hosting an evening in the new Westfield Suite (Ground level behind shop Sephora) and you’re welcome to come along for drink, eat and chat. When: 30th Nov Thursday 6 pm. I would be stoked to meet some of our Northside readers – I know there’s plenty! Come. Just rock up.
