Short postcard today. I was up early, and walking the Bondi sculpture trail before 8am to avoid the heat and crowds.
Definitely the way to go– but my knee is paying for all the stairs and steep streets between Tamarama Beach and Bondi Road.
Walking, Wei Wang. Bronze sculpture, visitor and resting bird.
Sea Scene, Rebecca Rose (a New Zealand artist).
These were some of my favourite shots.
The other nice thing about getting to Bondi early, is that it left lots of time to do other things too. so I’ve been “playing tourist” wandering along Circular Quay and past the Opera House.
While I admire the exterior architecture, I’m not a great fan of the interior and couldn’t face the stairs up to the entrance.
Instead, I went to the NSW State Library.
Like the Victoria State Library in Melbourne, this is housed in a beautiful neo-classical building (oops, forgot to photograph the exterior I was so keen to see inside).
The main reading room is lovely
… and I was very taken with this ‘Curate your own Exhibition’ activity on the lower floor. There were two boxes of prints that people could put into the frames. A lovely way to engage visitors.
I’ll leave you with the sunset view from my balcony — sans wine tonight. I’m just too tired.
