Well, this is a dire Christmas Day on Sydney’s most iconic beach. 21C with a strong cold southeast wind, and heavy grey clouds. Not exactly what you think of when the term “summer in Sydney” springs to mind, is it?
To me, there’s a sort of admirable determination to have fun going on with these people. We’re in Sydney, it’s Christmas Day, we’re going to the beach!
There seemed to be as many lifeguards as beachgoers, and with not a lot to do.
Compare this gloom to 25 December last year, which really was a perfect summer day.
