It was early spring, and M had a few days holiday. Why not do a walk mid-week along the coast? We decided to start our walk at Coogee. It wasn’t a particularly warm morning, but there was only a smattering of people on the sand.
The path itself though was quite busy with walkers and joggers. We made our way over the headland, and then down into Gordons Bay. It hasn’t changed much since my last visit 5 or so years.
Gordons Bay is a favourite spot for divers and snorklers. But the swell was up, so no go there that day.
The only people having fun on the water were the surfers. We saw a few at Bronte attempting to catch a wave or two. We left them to it as it was our lunch stop and turning back point.
The cake befits the simplicity of the reception. It was actually a lovely chocolate mud cake.
Surprisingly, it was light and very more-ish, unlike a lot of mud cakes these days which can really be on the heavy side.
The spread for this wedding was much more casual that the last wedding I went to. We shared platters of seafood and antipasti for entree and fruit, cheese and mini tarts for dessert. In the middle was a choice of chicken, steak or fish mains. I chose the fish, which didn’t turn out to be a good idea. Not enough sauce, although I had no complaints about the portion size.
Wedding bouquets are usually a standard issue, but I thought this one was rather old fashioned, but nevertheless stunning.
A lovely Saturday afternoon at Coogee Beach. Absolutely perfect weather, which is just as well, because 24 hours later it was raining cats and dogs.
