Sketch trip to Bather's Pavilion, Balmoral Beach
This building is a favourite of mine. Opened in 1929 the Pavilion was a beautifully designed change room for the large crowds of bathers who would visit Balmoral Beach, Sydney. In the 1960s the use of the Pavilion declined. It was then changed to a restaurant and in more recent years its been developed into a fine dining restaurant, a separate café and a kiosk.
Thanks to Ethna and Suzi who joined me on the day. It's always fun to have the company of other sketchers and share what we find interesting. Suzi kindly took a video of the Pavilion whilst we were there. You can see me for a quick second sitting on the beach sketching away in the sunshine, enjoying the sound of the waves on the shore behind me.
