We just had our first Christmas get-together with friends last weekend. So it is with the life of Filipinos abroad. Our Christmas get-together with all our group of friends are celebrated in advanced as some will be going home to the Philippines for Christmas. And by the time the Christmas holiday sets in, that's when we spend it with family and relatives.
On Saturday morning we had a Christmas brekkie party at the beach with our Tweethearts barkada (friends). We were lucky that it turned out to be a sunny day---perfect beach weather--at Coogee Beach.
Coogee Beach is known as Sydney's Seaside Village. It is located just minutes away from Sydney's CBD and the Sydney International Airport. The place is easily accessible via train and bus. You can take the train going to Central Station then get on bus numbers 370, 372, 373 or 374. Any of these buses will drop you right on the beach.
Coogee is a family-friendly beach with lots of space for walking, doing sports activities and having picnics. You'll find shops, restaurants and cafe nearby.
Pine trees are abundant and keeps the place attractively green.
The beach is popular for swimming as the waves here are not as big as the waves in other beaches.
One side of the beach was all sunny and bright, while on the other side, we saw mist (which I found out from my workmates on Monday was quite unusual) surrounding the area.
The view was beautiful though. A good backdrop for photographs.
Although the sun was out on Saturday morning, the breeze was cool and refreshing. We were there early so it wasn't as hot yet so the Husband bought us a cuppa.
A beautiful beach. Lovely weather. Fun time with great friends. Sharing good coffee with the Husband. One perfect moment and I couldn't ask for more.
