The trip to Hayman Island obviously had a profound effect on me as I got in a bikini yesterday with the intention of sunbathing on Bronte Beach. For those of you not in Sydney let me qualify this – yesterday was a beautiful spring day (about 22 degrees or so) but it was hardly sunbathing weather. And I should further qualify this by saying that I hardly ever go to the beach. In fact, this was the first time I have been on the sand in Bronte for many, many years. Yes, something has come over me. Before I know it I’ll be joining the crowds down to Bondi Beach this summer (this coming from the girl who still hasn’t actually been in the water at Bondi in three years despite living only a seven minute walk away). Also, notice the new flip flops/thongs (depending on your provenance) – they were a Hayman Island purchase. Another first: the joys of charging to your room. I’ve never done that before and it was a dangerous combination. Oh, the bikini was from the resort, too. Now, really got to get focused back on the city life.
