Bundeena Ferry

Okay, so I have been in Cronulla for like 7 months and this is the first time I have taken the ferry out to Bundeena. Granted I know why Jon or anyone never wanted to go there because there is not much. There are a few walking trails and some nice quiet beaches. I did not do much walking but there a lady on the ferry told me up the hill are some Aboriginal paintings or something. Bundeena is an Aboriginal  meaning "noise like thunder". 
I really liked the beach and the water there. I made Alec go with me. Let me start over. Abby, Alec and I had breakfast at Bass and Flinders.
 I had the Muffin Stack (yum). Let me tell you about this yummy discovery. It is a slice of a slightly toasted English muffin with an egg,  sauted haloumi cheese, avocado, tomato, then another slice of slightly toasted English muffin, then the same yumminess, then topped with another slice of slightly toasted English muffin. So like double layers. Yum. And rocket on the side. So freakin good. After brekkie we walked around the mall area before Abby had to go to work. Then Alec and I walked out to Oak Park. We had so much fun climbing around on the rocks. Alec discovered like 100 blue box jelly fish that had been washed up and he told me not to touch their tails bc they were poisonous. I had no idea! It was so scary.
Alec went to the bottle shop and grabbed a Coopers long neck and I got a sparkling water. We caught the 1:30 ferry to Bundeena. It was so much fun. The water there is gorgeous! It reminded me of Apollo Bay. We walked up to the RSL where Alec had a schooner then we walked down and waded in the water until the ferry came to pick us up. And that is my afternoon at Bundeena. Then I went to work.

Oh my. Has it been ages since I have written a post or what? I have been a bit busy and it has been to bloody hot to even bother. Thankfully it has cooled down (the weather, not my busyness).
This past week has been pretty fun and eventful. Abby’s friend from Kentucky came in town on Wednesday. She had to work at a dentist office in North Sydney but Kel and I picked him up to take him to Newtown. Jon, Kel, Alec, and I got into Newtown around 2ish and had lunch at Coopers. I had the Tofu burger and it was pretty yum. Then we went to Freaky Tiki. That place is so cool. It is decorated in a cheesy 1950s Hawaii theme with fake grass everywhere, outdoor furniture, old couches, umbrellas, bamboo, and flowers everywhere. Happy hour beer was only $3.50 from 4-7. Everything was cool except for the Coopers tap had just finished. Bummer. As we were sitting there we saw a guy try and do a U-turn in the middle of traffic and run straight into the side of a car and we saw a lovely tranny walk by. Then we went to the Bank Hotel and met Abby. We were sitting outside looking around and we see two girl playing Nintendo DS’s sitting right next to each other and the 2 girls were Chloe and Therese!  Funny. Chloe’s mom owns Sombrero’s and Therese is her friend.
