Sydney has some world-class beaches, and for my money, Cronulla, both north and south, is up there with the finest. Small wonder then that I’ve chosen it as a setting for one of the stories in my next, soon to be published book.
A perfect autumn day: clear blue sky, mild to warm temperatures, only a hint of a breeze: draws the crowds outdoors.
As we sit this afternoon on Cronulla’s beach-side promenade,watching the world go by, I am once again struck by both the natural beauty of the sea and the vibrant atmosphere the passer byes create.
There is plenty to observe: crashing waves, spectators, surfers, swimmers, and well-behaved canines of all varieties: to name just a few.
Above all, the vastness of the ocean against the horizon breeds a special kind of tranquility and happiness in me.
Life is good.
