Last Tuesday we went to Sydney to see the free open air Exhibition “Sculptures by the Sea”
We had planned this visit, for that day, because the weather forecasts promised us sunshine and summer-like temperatures.
A few das earlier a mighty surf had damaged some of the exhibits.
We started off at the Bondi Beach. And soon enough we saw the first of many sculptures.
It is an arduous walk along the rocks from Bondi Beach to Tamarama Beach. Young people use it for their fitness workout. Old people like us, hope to survive.
This exhibition is a yearly event and this year it was held for the 20th time. The artist come from all over the world.
While this exhibition was going on for the last twenty years mother nature was busy for aeons and formed its own spectacular creations.
Back to the human artists. There was so much to see. Every few minutes we had to pause as our legs are more than four times the age this exhibition is going.
Many people walked in either direction. They spoke in many languages. It was Babel all over again. But people were not confused in dealing with each other.
We had arrived dead tired at Tamarama Beach and felt like the rhinoceros in the last picture, flat on our backs.
