Robyn’s mother was a Kelly before marrying Keith Bender. We walked Ada St, Erskinville, early in the year.

Henley is a beautiful little pocket on the water just west of the Gladesville Bridge.

Some gorgeous old and new houses with views over the water east towards the city and west down the Parramatta River.

The historic Henley Baths used to be at the end of Kelly St… well, that’s what I’m guessing… buggered if I can find anything about them, but they are on Google Maps!


Cooper St, Paddington

My Niece, Kate is married to Trent Cooper.
We didn’t actually set out to walk Cooper St, but when you trip over it on a beatiful sunny Sunday, of course you’re going to walk down it!

Stephen St, Paddington.

Stephen is one of my Brothers-in-Law.

Whoops, we got our wires crossed and so walked Stephen St twice in two days.
This Stephen St is in Paddington, and given that Stephen also has a dog who is fond of a walk, we invited him and my sister Annie to come for a walk and a drink at a dog friendly local, the Grand National.

Beautiful day for a walk around the lovely Paddington area.

We were quite chuffed to see we walked by George – his middle name ­čÖé


Stephen St, Balmain

Lovely part of the world.

From down by the western overseas cruise terminal, Stephen St runs up towards the iconic London Hotel.


Conveniently located just near the Cascade Brewery, this road is on the edge of Hobart, the streets above dotted with new, modern (probably expensive) houses.

Richard Street, Greenwich

Posted: October 27, 2018 in Sydney Streets

Richard is Robyn’s late uncle, Wendy’s husband, our children’s great uncle. Emphasize great – a terrific fella who, with Wendy, really got family –┬á came to all our children’s 18ths, 21sts and the like – didn’t miss a single significant event.

Greenwich is a lovely harbour hugging Sydney suburb, and Richard Street is right on the harbour. Lovely views, very quiet, and a terrific wharf for your dog to swim from!


Lauren Close, Cherrybrook

Posted: October 20, 2018 in Sydney Streets

Lauren! Our beautiful daughter! We finally got around to walking your street! Hooray!!
At the northern end of Cherrybrook, towards Pennant Hills, Lauren Close abuts the bush.
Typical of many streets that take their name from a person, Lauren Close is a tiny cul de sac. Neatly kept houses in an aspirational suburb.
