Whilst wandering through the beach-side Sydney suburb of Clovelly, we inadvertently stumbled upon Gordon’s Bay; a tiny little pocket of sand and rocks nestled between Clovelly and Coogee with magnificent scenery, looming cliff faces and a fossilised Jurassic Island kind of feel to it that, whilst being one of the smallest bays in Sydney, simultaneously had the ability to make me me feel oh so terribly insignificant. A small blip in the time that it’s taken to carve out the beautiful stripey formations in the rock face, or grow the thick green shrubbery that hangs over the cliffs like waterfalls. On this Autumn day in Sydney, the pungent smell of seaweed and the white cottagey building perching on the rocks in the distance could have almost convinced me that I was wandering around a beach back home in England. Almost. The palm trees edging over the cliff tops above and the cackle of Kookaburra’s in the distance was a firm reminder of my more exotic surroundings.
Here are my favourite photo’s from Gordon’s Bay xo
