Easter Sunday. Bronte is the next beach down from Bondi [there's that fantastic 2km walk between them along the cliffs and through Tamarama]. Bronte is much better for families - got playgrounds etc.

Two ferry journeys, almost twenty years apart. I met Poul [from Denmark] in 1987 in the South of France, while on holiday around Nice.
I don't remember much about it now, except that we mooched around a bit, went to the casino at Monte Carlo and bummed around the beach with a cool New Yorker called Bernie Delgado who worked as a designer on the New York Post.
At that time Poul was training to be a journalist and I was going from one disastrous career choice (drug repping for Astra) to another (PhD back at Liverpool Uni).
Well we had a lot to talk about then, and even more to talk about when Poul turned up in Sydney this week - after a break of 18 years! We had lunch at Aqua and then took a ferry across the harbour. The weather was slightly better than it was in 87 when Poul and I took a ferry across the Mersey.
Poul now works for TV2 in Denmark.
