So yesterday was HALLOWEEN! And it was amazing! I spent in total about $40 and spent around 14 hours constantly baking and cooking food. The perfect amount to feel 30 people who came to my Halloween party. My recipes will be in my next post. Any way, myself and another blogger, Cinammonandclouds, who fantastically enough lives near by to me (she is a quirky woman 50 years young and so much fun to hang out with) got up at four am and drove to Bondi beach to see Sculptures By The Sea WONDERFUL!
If you live in or near Sydney get your butt down to Bondi beach to see it, it ends on the 4th of November.
Cinammonandclouds and I left before the traffic and arrived at Bondi just before day break. Such a fantastic view from the top of the hill. I was surprised by the huge amounts of joggers already out and running. They looked so content.

I would consider it a great morning. All done by 8am. A really great experience. the one thing both Cinnamonandclouds and I realised is just how entitled some of the runners and cyclists are. I was extremely shocked by how rude both groups were. This is just a generalisation but the people we saw that day were insanely rude. The runners pushing past many of the elderly walkers. I can understand you want to run, then run, You want to run fast then wait for an appropriate time to pass, not the very narrow pathway that doesn’t have a rail. Gee. It actually drove me crazy how inconsiderate of others a few people were. And cyclists. Oh gosh. Now I really enjoy beach running and the occasional cycle on a bike path. But what gets my knickers in a twist is when cyclist ride on the road when there is a bike path designed just for them. So, not only does the road have less lanes to provide for a footpath and a cycle lane that is EMPTY, about the 20 cyclist that I saw took up the entire lane traveling in separate packs. I don’t understand at all what possess them to do this.
Cyclists and I have issues, I am not going to lie, ever since I was a learner driver, I went for a drive with my dad, I was boxed in going up a hill on a blind corner by cyclists for 45 minutes going at 10km or less and almost hit about 9 of them after the few that were not trapping me from moving were standing with their bikes in the middle of a road next to an intersection. (Specifically I am talking about West Head on the Northern Beaches. At 7am on a Saturday Morning ) On another note after finding that experience traumatic, I have about 4 people in my extended family who are right into it, I can understand the joy of the open road but seriously if there is a lane designed specifically for you, and you don’t need to turn and there is nothing wrong with the lane.. Why do they do it?!
*~End of Rant~*
But back to the good note that I will end on, It was warm and sunny and the water was beautiful! To get a boost of beautiful connection with the earth go for a barefoot walk on the beach and I will try to get some picture up from an art exhibit I went to in Liverpool Art Museum in the UK.
Have a great day. Happy Halloween
