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!

Sam, Susan and Henry’s father is Gavin.

On the northern edge of Cherrybrook, abutting the bush, lies Gavin Place.

What to do? Go with the given name (Lynne St) or what Lynne is known by (Charlie Close near Wet ‘n Wild, Sydney or Charlie St at Middleton Grange). In the end we settled for Lynne St, Hornsby, which we walked with friends Tracie and Mal.

Like many streets with a given person’s name, Lynne St is pretty short, as evidenced by the panorama I took using the Google St view app.

It’s often not until you walk around streets that you realise where you are in relation to other locations you know well – like the Golf Driving Range at Thorneigh we could see (in the pic below.)

Trent Rd runs into an industrial area at North Rocks. Bailey enjoyed a run through the bush at the end of the street, quiet on a Saturday afternoon.
I think it might be a bit busier on Sunday… the largest church compound we have ever seen is at the end of the road. Saesoon Presbyterian Church is a massive beast… hectares of land, thousands of square metres of buildings and car parks.

Judith St runs east from Wakehurst Parkway.
One of the streets coming off it is Waterview St. We didn’t notice it the first time we passed it, but when we got to the end we saw that some of the residents of Judith St have lovely views out over Manly.

Julie is my brother Geoff’s wife.

Some welcome rain over the long weekend didn’t dampen our spirits. We parked the car near Julie St and walked towards Macquarie University along the path that follows Shrimpton Creek.

Breakie at a cafe (who’d have thought a dog would be keen for pickled turnip?!) and we made it back without needing to use the umbrellas.
