I never thought I’d write these words, but Bondi Beach is closed to the public. All the ramps have large fences erected, surfers are being called out of the water and there’s a large police presence.
I was getting worried on Friday afternoon when 25,000 people came down to Bondi – disregarding the social distancing regulations. It was an enormous summer crowd, the lifeguards performed 30 rescues – typical of a big summers day.
It was getting out of control.
After they closed all the beaches over the weekend, the pubs and restaurants were rammed. Crazy! So from today, all dining-in food and beverage are shut down – takeaway still available.
Last night, one of my neighbours was even having a little party! What!@#?
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says schools will remain open across NSW but parents will now be encouraged to keep their children at home…if that’s possible in your situation.
In this emotional, touchy, scary time please be kind to one another – I’ve seen blow-ups on social media that have made me cringe. I’ve seen cars go through red lights and some pretty agro humans.
Stay positive and healthy.
The surf was onshore, 3ft. Don’t think you’re missing much out there.
The Aquabumps Gallery IS OPEN today, as the government has not closed retail. Being a very large gallery space, we rarely have more than 1 customer at a time anyway – so you’ll get plenty of space.
