Nic is our oldest nephew.

Nicholas Ave is down near the water at Concord, not far yet a thousand miles away from busy Burwood and Strathfield.

There’s lovely walks along the waterfront nearby. Not that you’d want to eat any of the fish caught here, but it’s constantly getting cleaner.

The Dudley at Paddington is a busy local between Paddington and Rushcutters Bay.

BUSY on Christmas Eve, but each year we always go a park at Rushcutters Bay right next to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia where we picnic and wander among the boats before they start the Sydney to Hobart.

 

Saturday was a beautiful late winter’s Sydney day. Perfect for a walk around the foreshore facing the city.

A great local, trading since 1937, the Kirribilli Hotel, right next to Milsons Point station, has a good range of domestic and imported beers on tap, and plenty of screens for the sports nut.

Beautifully situated above Woolwich Dock, the Woolwich Pier Hotel is right at the end of the peninsula at Woolwich, near Hunters Hill. With views to the Bridge and Harbour, it’s a favourite of locals and visitors alike.

The Woolwich has a beautiful balcony as well as beer gardens that afford private areas for small groups to sit and enjoy a drink.

What a beautiful spring morning for a walk from the bottom of Mowbray Road along the northern shore of the lane Cove River towards Fullers Bridge Road.

This part of the Great North Walk takes you through the historic Fairyland Pleasure Grounds, made famous by the Swan family in the 1920s. It’s an easy walk in.

The Council has done a good job of identifying what used to be there, quite extraordinary to imagine women with parasols  and man in boater hat’s and blazers picnicking and going on Ferris wheel and merry-go-round.

Plenty of historic pics here

LOVE daylight saving  And long weekend public holidays!

Beautiful day for a lovely walk along the Parramatta River from Meadowbank to Silverwater

A fabulous wide, level bike path past ovals, water play playgrounds and more.

ANOTHER gorgeous Sydney spring day for a walk along another part of the Parramatta River… we’ve walked through the grounds of the old Gladesville Hospital before, but not this year.
Great to catch up with son Matt, who lives in Gladesville, for a coffee while we were there  🙂
