Iconically Australian...

At exactly 33.89S and 151.27E you will have reached your destination!


Iconically Australian and delightfully quirky...

  ...welcome to The Grounds by the Sea...  

A Pop-Up Cafe in Marks Park  and The Grounds of Alexandria's Baby sister,

It's where comfort is paramount...

And unfortunately, NOT for sale!

It's where refreshments entice amidst the sandy bric-a-brac

And just around the corner, is the Pick Up joint...

... for sumptious snacks and exotic drinks 
served by staff schooled in the Basil Fawlty tradition!

Then take a pew...

Under the clothes line...

Amidst wodden pegs and underwear...

As you watch the sun slowly sink into the warm earth

Or if you prefer a more muted sky...

Sit at the front overlooking Bondi Beach

And a ubiqutous lone pine.

The Grounds by the Sea is surely grounds for permanency?

Spring is in the air....

Spring is in the air...

Time to dust off the cobwebs...

Open our sleepy eyes...

Come out of hibernation...

And face the warming sun and grow some more!

It's dinner time!

It's dinner time...

But I am loathe to share!

And I have a question: 
"Just how long do they think my neck is?"

But I guess there is method in their madness... there is more than enough to go round!

The colours of the Sydney Fish Markets

The Sydney Fish Markets are a rainbow of delight...

from the silver slivers of the Atlantic salmon...

 to the golden eyes of the orange sea bass.

Then there's the gentle pink hues of the New Zealand snapper ...

And the luminous emerald of the Green-lipped mussel...

Not forgetting the gentle baby pink underbelly of the octopus.

There's lemon delight yellow...

And the sunset hues of the tiger prawn...

... the electric swimmer crab blue...

...and the golden earthy shells of the oyster

... freshly shucked...

...and garishly garnished to go.

And adding to the colour is the perennial pelican...

and the ubiquitous seagull in search of a morsel, a soupçon...a tidbit.   

And the biggest surprise of all...

My boat!
