We’re parking up by the peppermint trees at Coogee beach, or out by the main road, and strolling up the sealed path, over the dune, to the sand and azure ocean. People swim in the big “pool” enclosed by the shark net. Kids jump off the jetty.

We’re standing on the grey lookout at Henderson Cliffs, staring down into the shallow water and ski paddlers passing, or out over Cockburn Sound to Garden Island, where timber ships from Europe were once careened and repaired.
