|Bondi Beach, Australia|
High temperatures in the 60s and lows in the 40s didn't slow down the locales from swimming, but my sister, Susan,and I decided to stick on land and just admire the view.
You're looking at Bondi Beach. On a weekend, summer day, upwards of 35,000 people come here.
Still, visitors year-round enjoy strolling along the cliffs of the coastal walk that winds through four scenic beaches along the way.
The two-hour journey is an impressive way to take in the beauty of the Pacific.
Susan even managed to spot another migrating, humpback whale about a mile off shore.
Sadly, we must wrap up our Australian holiday. I'd highly recommend a visit to Sydney. The nightlife is lively, the residents quite friendly, and there's a plethora of places to see.
Best of all, I got to spend a week with my big sister, minus the distractions of work and child rearing. Great time.
I leave you with something to ponder – where will you be in the year 2065?
Before taking off for my summer break, I saw a student poster asking this very question. Statistically speaking, I'll be long gone from the face of the Earth, as well as the rest of my family and friends, unless I somehow live to be 100.
Sobering isn't it. It seems like I just graduated from college, and yet this weekend, I'll awake as a 50-year-old man.
Time is passing. What are you putting off? Why not do it now.
