There were two big things on my Sydney bucket list that I just didn't have time to get to:
1. Weekend in Melbourne
2. Visit the Hunter Valley
Instead, I spent my last weekend exploring locally.
Saturday, my coworker picked me up in her brand new Audi to check out Palm Beach. It was gorgeous.

|Overcast and clouds but no rain|
That afternoon, I met another coworker to repeat the views from the Coogee-to-Bondi beach walk. This was probably my favorite thing about Sydney, so I made time to do it twice.

|Lauren did the first part of the walk with me but had to get on with her day, while I kept trudging|
You can see the clouds start coming in as the afternoon progresses, and I did get hit with a bit of rain as I caught the bus back downtown. All in all, it was a truly wonderful last weekend in Sydney.
