Way back in 2002 when I was studying abroad at the University of New South Wales in Australia I lived in the beautiful little town of Coogee Beach.  This was actually my first time living abroad and I always knew it was something I would do again at some point in my life. These images were taken around February of 2002.  Recently in 2018 I travelled back to Sydney with my family and we visited Coogee beach so I could show them around and I was happy to see that the community has retained most of the same character it had over 15 years ago.  The Coogee Bay Hotel and a Fish Called Coogee are still in the neighborhood and still serving excellent beer and food.
