Cameron St Birchgrove

Posted: August 5, 2018 in Uncategorized

Cameron is one of nephews who is getting married to Eliza next week, so a good time to walk Cameron St. on a glorious winter morning.

Birchgrove is a fabulous suburb, so close to the city with a wide range of off-leash dog parks with harbour access. We could very easily downsize to here.

As we’ve found in previous years, a great variety of little pubs and cafes too.

Elder son, Matt. (Whoops, already done Matthew St in Crows Nest! #favouritechild?? LOL)

Such a range of houses around St Ives. Rundown bungalows strewn with rubbish, huge houses with manicured gardens, even old houses with horses in the adjoining paddock (2 horses on a block, probably about $1million per horse!)

 

Waverton to Woolwich

We started with breakfast at The Coal Loader Cafe. in Balls Head Rd at Waverton, where we were a few weeks ago.
Beautiful spot – have to remember this as a venue for a 60th or similar.

From there we headed west, making our way around Balls Head Bay and Oyster Cove, around Berry Island Reserve and on towards Greenwich above the fuel tanks at Gore Cove, some of which have been removed, but some are still in use today, pumping fuel from here to Clyde near Parramatta.

Oyster Cove at the end of Wondakiah Dr at Waverton. Dense housing around, but lots of parkland maintained. Nice!

Berry Island – the point where land was filled to connect it to the mainland and make it no longer an island as such,
