I live in a village-like place with an English name, a beach and cliff-side walks, that is situated at a distance of five kilometres from the central business district of Sydney. Our second closest beach is named Coogee, which is an Aboriginal word meaning “rotting seaweed,” which rings true every now and then when the winds and tides dislodge the vegetation at the bottom of the sea just off the beach. The weather is warm to hot all year round, apart from a short winter period, during which the temperature can drop to 15 degrees, and only a few intrepid Aussies and some English backpackers take to the water.
