After lunch at the Bulli Beach Cafe, we walked along the headland and looked down on the Bulli Ocean Pool.
As we watched the rising swell, I imagined his small boat struggling through the ‘great surf which beat up everywhere’.
Then we moved down to the flat and circumnavigated around the edge.
Past the turquoise starting blocks lined up like monuments at the south end.
And the remains of the original Woonona Pool.
I dipped my hand in the blue-green water and wished I’d brought my cossies.
And then a rainbow appeared and arched across the ocean like the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
And cast a ring of light like a halo over the pool.
