Coogee Island Challange

When I get up in the morning and look out the window I see wedding cake island, one of Coogee's most distinctive landmarks, it even has its own entry on wikipedia here. I personally find it interesting how some land marks get ingrained into a places identity, wedding cake island certainly is. 

When I got up on Sunday morning to look out at this island I saw what looked like over 1000 people swimming around it. I can nearly swim 200m before drowning let along the 2.4km circuit from the beach around the island so the idea had not even crossed my mind. So I grabbed my cameras and headed down to the beach to grab some shots.
