City to Surf

Church was a little different this morning, with helicopters circling overhead, the noise of their rotors at times almost drowning out the sound of the preacher. 

On our Point we were totally isolated by road closures, so only those living in the immediate neighbourhood could make it, and our street – if not the airspace – was blissfully free of traffic.

At the end of the street it was a different story as 80,000 people ran past in the City to Surf, Sydney’s annual fun-run from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach.

IMG_7409It takes a long time for 80,000 runners to pass by.  This was the scene a whole hour after the 8.30am start  - runners of all shapes and sizes as far as the eye could see! IMG_7410

They have a spectacular day weather-wise.  Strangely enough I’ve never been tempted to join them :-) 


  1. Nothing strange about that at all Di. I would be feeling the same way.

  2. Strange, Di.....I have never felt tempted to join the joggers either.....*grin*


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
