With the mercury on the rise over here, the beaches are gettin’ busy! Over the last 3 weeks, I’ve noticed the beaches get a little more packed with every passing weekend. The surfers are out – even when there seems to be NO waves, the surfers are out. The bodyboarders are out. There are people in kayaks and on surf skis. Oh, let’s not forget the kite boarders.

And, yes, it’s acceptable for the ladies to go sans top on the beaches throughout Australia. And if you’re of diaper-wearing age, I guess it’s no biggie to scrap the bottoms. For the men, boardshorts (baggies) are a common choice for many. But you’ll find quite a few of the older men and little guys sporting the speedos or brief-style swimming attire. (Note to the ladies, sometimes this fashion statement is nice – think lifeguard – but other times, yeah, not so nice.)
