Aussie snapshots: beach culture

A few weeks ago, we had use of a friend’s car (thank you Jennifer!) while they were on vacation in Hawaii. It was really fun to stretch our wings beyond our usual public-tranportation circumpherence and see a few new corners of Sydney.

Here’s local phenomenon. It seems like every beach has it’s own Surf Life Saving Club. Also known as men in budgie smugglers (that’s Aussie for Speedo), charging into the surf, for entertainment and perhaps sometimes even for lifesaving.
