Behind Newport Beach there’s a considerable hill which rises up to Bilgola Plateau. Over the crest and down the hill towards Pittwater is Joanne Place.

So… after breakfast at Newport, by the time we walked down Joanne Place our legs were feeling it!

Pretty little street in a lovely area of Sydney.

Too beautiful today not to go for a walk – 24 degrees with a blue sky and no breeze.

We met my oldest sister Annie and her husband Stephen (yet to be walked) for breakfast at The Incinerator at Willoughby and then walked Ann St.

A catch-up with my brother Geoff (and Julie and Georgia)

Walked past an old friend’s place as well as where Catherine once lived.

Lovely day.

Geoffrey is my brother. Sadly, absolutely NO STREET SIGN for Geoffrey St, so he’ll just have to take our word for it!

Lovely, quiet little loop/cul de sac backing onto the bush just off the Comenarra Parkway in Sydney’s north.

A nice walk with the dog on Geoffrey’s birthday.

David is Robyn’s sister’s husband, who now lives on the Gold Coast.

David St is a short street that runs off the Pacific Hwy at the corner of North Sydney Girls’ High School (the old site of Crows Nest Boys’ High)

Some gorgeous older semis, new backyard developments and renovated homes.

Susan is my niece.

This Susan St is in Newtown, is a quiet, narrow, small street in an area that historically was working class small cottages and semis and rows of joined houses with dunny lanes.

Now? Who doesn’t want to lice in a cosmopolitan, bustling are 2 km from the CBD?

Love the park on the corner. Love the nod to its former use.

Catherine is one of my older sisters.

Just near the hustle and bustle of Sydney Uni and Glebe Point Rd cafes, restaurants, bars and bookshops is Catherine St.

Great spot for breakie and a walk through this old area, well known for as one of the areas championed by Tom Uren who promoted the restoration and re-use of some run-down inner city areas like Glebe (and Woolloomooloo as well).

Finally able to take the dog for a walk after she had surgery before Christmas. Nice 🙂

HWe read that there were markets at the old Defence site where Silverwater Rd crosses the Parramatta River, so we headed down early to beat the heat and check them out.

We parked in John St and walked past what is fast becoming a rare site this close to Sydney… heaps of old fibro houses. Lots of old Housing Commission houses as well.

We combined this with a walk along the Parramatta River along the great path that’s been built there.
