COVID-19, local only, so a look at where the council is up to re what’s been added to the walk along the river around Rydalmere.
Pretty well done.

Plenty of space to run around 🙂

Macquarie Park and bike track

It was near the start of COVID-19 lockdown, so we walked along the bike path to the shopping centre to buy… yep… toilet paper and rice! We’d made the mistake of not hoarding like everyone else so we were in need.

Lovely day for a walk, so we went along the bike/shared bike/footpath to the shops; while one shopped, the other went for a stroll around the new towers.

Thanks to my sons for this find.
And well done Inner West Council – Marrickville Golf Club closes the first fairway each Sunday afternoon – beers and dogs on the green. Nice!

This video shows the scene 🙂

At Bayview, on Pittwater, is a beach and spit extending towards the Newport Arms Hotel.
On any given sunny weekend day, there you’ll find hundreds of dogs, either on the beach, oval or swimming.
What a sight!

This weekend we went for a walk through the grounds of our local uni, where we studied in the late 70s and early 80s.

We went for a walk through the uni itself, as well as a lovely off-leash wander through the carparks out the back.

Ahh, memories!

Just like I remember it. Brutal.

Reminded me of the Jewish memorial in Berlin.
