|Ever since daylight savings kicked-in here a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been seriously behind in my daily morning walks; the tinkering with time really threw my body clock off kilter.
So today, even though it looked like rain, I took off shortly after sunrise for what would normally be my favourite 1.5 hour Sydney Eastern Suburbs coastal walk – down Military Road from my house in Dover Heights to Bondi Beach, then up around the spectacular cliffside walking paths, past a few beaches, then back.
By the time I reached the coast I remembered that I was right in the middle of Sydney’s 12th annual Sculpture by the Sea festival. The 2 kilometres from Bondi to Tamarama is dotted with over 100 sculptures from around the world, set against the beautiful backdrop of the Tasman Sea.
My walk stretched on for close to 4 hours, and I met a few interesting people on the way. This little boy is made entirely from blocks of carved glass.
Andy Warhol is woven from wire.
Our giant soldier was cast from metal, then artfully coated with a green plastic skin. He resembled one of the little plastic soldiers I used to collect when I was young, only bigger.
