12 Beaches of Christmas 2015

Clovelly Beach Revisited

Yesterday was the first Saturday of Summer 2015. And I spent that time wisely, in a Sydney seaside suburb I was privileged to call home for 5 years – Clovelly.

As I drove along Clovelly Road, passing million dollar homes, cafés, beautiful parkland, I almost had to pinch myself. How lucky I had been to have the ocean as my backyard & Centennial Park as my weekend retreat.

But for a reality check I walked past my old residence…. The one home in a line of majestically restored mansions that has been truly let go. It awaits demolition. Mould & damp  just some of the challenges I faced when living there.

But as I soaked up the naturally beauty of Clovelly Beach, the sun, sand and sea washed the mould & damp from my memory. I had lived the Eastern Suburb princess dream on a budget- Bondi, Coogee, Bronte beach are now lifelong friends.

But Clovelly Beach is a sentimental favourite….a perfect way to launch into the ‘ 12 Beaches of Christmas 2015’. With 11 more reviews to come, summer is here to stay!! Hip hip hooray!!
