I have lived in Sydney, Australia my whole life and I have finally taken a swim at world famous Bondi Beach. On Tuesday, January 25, 2011 I did what so many tourists from around the globe instinctively do upon arriving in the Harbour City. It is possible as a young boy I might have had a swim at Bondi but I certainly have no memory of it. The sand was soft and pure and the water was so refreshing. A week later there was a heat wave in Sydney and how I wished I was back at Bondi Beach!
