Selfies by the sea

I took the kids to see Sculpture by the Sea – have you been? It’s one of our favourite things to do each year. The kids love exploring the artworks and taking photographs.

I hardly needed to take any snaps at all. I just stole theirs for the blog.

DD tagged along with us, so I got the kids to take a few photos of us too. We only have a couple of selfies of ourselves together, so I felt like a bit of a superstar having two kids clicking away.

Unfortunately DD and I are both extremely camera shy, so neither of us were happy with any of them. I finally settled on one that I was sort of OK and we’re not even looking at the camera in it.

It was a gorgeous afternoon – perfect weather for a stroll from Bondi to Tamarama.

The youngest was totally transfixed by the giant Nifty bottles in the sand that squirted water. I was a sucker for anything with an ocean backdrop. That view beats anything man-made (sorry sculptors).

When we’d finished being arty we scoffed dumplings at Miss Chu, then wandered wearily home.

My tip for anyone planning a visit is not to try getting there via the Harbour Tunnel on a weekday afternoon. It took FOREVER. We’ve resolved to try for an early-morning commute next year.

But, on balance, it was worth the arduous trek.

  1. That’s a lovely pic of you and DD. Cool photos of the art too. I think I’ll take my son after school one day. Was planning on getting up at 6am to go yesterday but it just didn’t happen!
