This years Sculpture by the Sea exhibition wrapped up last Sunday and, thankfully, I managed to make it down there with a day to spare.
Traversing Sydney’s coastline from Tamarama to Bondi beach, the event has grown in popularity with each passing year. In fact, its gotten so popular that I found it quite difficult to find a parking spot around Tamarama at 5.30am! Frustratingly, by the time I parked the car, I had missed the 5.50am sunrise! Grrrrrr. 😦 It’s hard to stay cranky for too long though – the crashing waves, fresh air and soft sand coupled with the suns warming rays and the array of spectacular sculptures make any early morning annoyances fade quickly.
On the whole, I enjoyed this years selection of installations although I didn’t feel it was its strongest year – well, to my aesthetic anyway. Even so, it was certainly worth the early morning trip.
And, I have to say, I do enjoy that beachside coffee before heading home to start the (rest of the) day. 😉
