Beach Day

Hi everyone! Today’s post is going to be short and sweet, as I’ve been out all day and I’m heading out in an hour to meet friends for dinner. This afternoon, my man and I spent a few hours on Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach, and then we came home to do some hill running around our neighborhood. It was a perfect mix of laziness and fitness!

We packed a few snacks in our cooler (or “esky”, as they’re called here). I always keep bottles of water in the freezer – they keep everything cold in the cooler, and that way we always have super cold water on the beach…

Within just 15 minutes, we were at the beach…

And chose our spot…

(We actually used to live in the white building on the right. We miss it, but we also really love living downtown – and it’s only 15 minutes away!)

We kicked-off our flip-flops. They’re called “thongs” here but really, I could never get used to calling them that!

We put a lot of this on…

We nibbled on carrot sticks dipped in hummus. Actually, it was more like chickpea dip, as I we’re out of tahini at the moment. But with lots of lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and fresh-ground pepper, it was still delicious.

I picked up this book from Peter Singer (author of Animal Liberation, the book that convinced me to go vegan) for $5 at the markets the other day… so far, so good!

We also ate a few mandarin oranges. Do you try to remove the skin in one piece? My brother and I used to do it as kids and I still do it to this day.

Greetings from Sydney, everyone! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
