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.

Robyn’s mum was Patricia.
We’d already walked her street, but we could hardly be expected to walk past another?!

Wendy Mews, Chirnside Park (VIC)

Wendy is Robyn’s aunt, Patricia’s sister.

We were in Melbourne for the weekend visiting Wendy, so after breakfast we went for a drive and walked Wendy Mews, not far from where she lives on Melbourne’s fringe.
Not an overly taxing walk… Wendy Mews is about 30 metres long.

It’s in a brand new estate with many houses yet to finishing their landscaping.

Gorgeous morning for a walk with good company.

 

Lynne Place, Hornsby

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.)

A gorgeous early spring day for a walk in Sydney this weekend. Sun’s out, blue sky; just perfect.

Georgia and Anthony are my brother’s children and it was nice to find that Anthony Road in Castle Hill and Georgia Terrace in Kellyville are both fairly close to each other so it made sense to walk the two of them in the one go.

Lots of large McMansions in Kellyville; new houses are are the first ones built on new sub-divisions.

Anthony Rd, though, totally different. Older weatherboards that will not be there for much longer as the suburb changes markedly with the building of the new rail connection.

Lots of large McMansions in Kellyville; new houses are are the first ones built on new sub-divisions. New parks being built to cater for the increasing number of children who have nowhere to play in their own backyards – a lot of these houses have a huge footprint and sit on smaller blocks.

Very different to Anthony Rd, which has a lot of older weatherboards that will not be there for much longer as the suburb changes markedly with the building of the new rail connection.
