Ice skating on the beach

7/17/10

Australia is not usually a place you think of for ice skating. This winter, they've transformed part of Bondi Beach into sort of a Bavarian winter wonderland complete with ice rink, "ski lodge", and lots of German food and beer. The "ski lodge" was just a hall with some tables for people to relax at, and all of decoration was cheesy but fun.

Bob Mohan, Victoria Fan, Andrew McLoughlin, Laura Gandy and myself from the Finance team in Sydney all went to the 3pm skating session on Saturday. Not having skated on rental skates in 10+ years, it was more difficult than I'm used to. I'm wishing I had brought my skates from Singapore. 

Here are a few photos and videos of the afternoon. Enjoy!

I'll be back in Singapore on Friday, and I'll move in to our new apartment over the weekend. Then just a few more weeks until Flora and our doggies can join me in Singapore. Once the Florarazzi gets to Singapore, there will be plenty of pictures and updates for our blog.

  3. It's a tough life, but someone's got to live it! Thanks for sacrificing for us Jeff! So, is it warm despite being winter? Those looked like awfully light sweaters people were wearing.

  4. it has been pretty cool here actually (as in bay area winter weather). Mostly high 40s - mid 50s. Although I think it was a little warmer on Saturday at Bondi since it was so sunny.
