Thomas St, Croydon

Posted: January 16, 2018 in Sydney Streets

Thomas is our youngest son.
Thomas St runs from Liverpool Rd near Ashfield shops to The Strand at Croydon; The Strand being a traditional strip shopping village near Croydon Station.
Croydon is an older suburb and so has an interesting mix of old houses – some renovated, others ready for a lick of paint and a few that will likely be bulldozed in the near future.

An early morning ride along the Alexandria Canal from Tempe to Alexandria.

Enjoyed breakfast at The Grounds cafe. 

Not really what could be described as a scenic ride… it is along a canal and beside an airport after all, but still, a bit of blue on the map to fill in, and breaking at an institution such as The Grounds… well, any excuse will do!

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  🙂

 

Glorious spring day for a walk from Mortlake to Rhodes, through Concord and the grounds of Dame Edith Walker Hospital, Thomas Walker Hospital near Concord Hospital and Yaralla.
