Bondi Burrows
3rd Dec 2016 - 26th Dec 2016
Christmas 2016

This year Katie and Dan offered to host Christmas, so after an early morning swim at a beautiful and still calm Bondi Beach we set to opening the presents under the tree before heading to Coogee for lunch. Katie and Dan had put on an amazing seafood buffet, washed down with plenty of wine. Then we headed to Coogee Beach with a bucket of frozen dacquari in an esky. It was packed at the beach with an impromtu dance party kicking off on the grass behind the beach. We claimed a spot close to the water and settled in to watch the drunken backpackers get pummelled by the dumping waves. Finally, as the lifeguards started to drag the more inebriated revellers out of the surf, we headed back to Katie and Dan's place for cold meats and cheese, and more wine. The annual dirty santa present giving was as predictable as usual - we all ended up with the present we had bought! I had got the Pie Face game, and Flips ended up with a card game called Exploding Kittens, so the next few hours were hilariously spent playing games and getting covered in cream. Happy Christmas!
