I was recently working at Cronulla. Wasn't exactly too enthusiastic about having to travel for 4 hours everyday (with the train ride itself being at least 1 hour).
Was feeling a little uneasy after the big incident that shocked Australia a few years ago at Cronulla as well. Being Asian, I was definitely hoping that my safety would not be an issue.
After the first few days, my views changed as the people there are really friendly and they have an amazing beach and huge houses on the South. Some of this houses are above $5 million. It never ceases to amaze me how houses that are so far away can still cost so much. Fair enough you get a water view but if I had to spend that much. I might as well can one closer to the CBD.
I was rushing to finish my work during the week and had little chance of enjoying the water views when I was there. On the last day, I found this nice little area which had the best view ever. Considering that the spot I found was on private property and was on heritage land, I felt quite privileged to have been able to have my lunch and take in the fresh breeze for a few minutes.
Of course I had to take some pictures. =P
