warm bones

The bloke on the bench also had plenty to say about other things. About Sydneysiders - that they may have a reputation for being friendly and laid back but are actually pretty aggressive, out for what they can get. And endlessly (accurately) about the dire, damp nature of the English climate. It gets into your bones he said. Of course I defended the pleasures of dampness, all the time thinking ah yes, warm bones. 

Note - the beach at Coogee has been invariably packed body-to-body. This is an unrealistic view (showing the Pavilion in the background which is also always packed) taken early in the morning before the crowds arrived.
