It's getting hot. My dial-up has gone totally bananas. The greengrocer is back but the suburb is away. Curtains are drawn.

Which way to the beach?

I found this image in a round-about way looking for deck chairs at Picture Australia which oddly led to this unidentified beach

(But then this is more your standard deck chair, isn't it?)

Comments: bananas

Bringing back the modesty panel!

That great equaliser and gateway to the mysterious south has been sadly consigned to the dustbin of 'life's a beach' history by those shameless, desporting their wares, Speedo clad jocks and jockettes.

I think someone ought to do something about it!

Yes and I think he may have lost his equaliser somewhere in the surf?
A serious breach on the beach?

Very attractive. In my mind, boynton, the woman in the bathing costume is you.

Na - I look nothing like that. Or 'Boynton' for that matter. Except around the hat.

This would be Coogee Beach I suspect?

Oh stop shattering my illusions!
In my minds eye boynton will always be the woman in the bathing costume.

Millipede. I'll take it as a compliment.
(But it was lucky I didn't link to my usual type of historic photo of anonymous unglamorous woman in domestic deckhair with terrier.)

Philip. Coogee? Coodbe?

I don't know Sydney, unfortunately.

Indeed, coodbe Coogee. The historic photo is taken from a little further south than the contemporary one I think. Not Bondi or Manly or Deewhy or any of the little deep ones, and after a while you run out of options. Coogee has an adventure playground. I adventured there one night after an enjoyable evening out with friends, before voluntarily moving on to Pancakes on the Rocks where we were involuntarily moved on.

That's a nice description.

And those beach names
Bondi, Manly, Deewhy, Coogee
they can't be beat can they
