Walking my suburb

This winter has not been very cold in Sydney.
I've enjoyed lots of walks across, through and around the peninsula that I call home.
Below are a few snaps that I took along the way.

Propeller Park, East Balmain

Space saving kayak storage!

View of White Bay. Sydney Harbour is still a working harbour.

Magnificent gum tree in the park near my house.

It's very therapeutic having a little bush retreat so close to home.


As winter comes to end, the wattle begins to blossom.

Bird of Paradise (Strelitizia) flowering in Mort Bay.

There are only a few spots left on the peninsula where you can walk on sand. This is my favourite little beach.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, merry, merry king of the bush is he....

Ferry Crossing!

Sea mist over White Bay.

Frosty after effects on my walk to work one day.

Evening lights over the city from Cameron Cove

Here comes Spring! The first magnolia!

  1. I don't think I've ever seen a Kookaburra. I love your pictures of the sea and the Kayaks.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. All of your photos have something that gives them the tinge of Australia. I can see Australia in every shot.

  4. My granddaughter and I sing the song about the kookaburra. Now I know what one looks like!
    Your photos make me want to hop a plane to Sydney right now. Beautiful area.

  5. I can see that you live in a bustling city, but it also looks like a nature preserve. The natural beauty is just stunning - thanks to your excellent photography. There are so many things I like here from the old gum trees to that amazing spider web and more. I'm so glad you shared.

  6. I love your photos around Sydney. A couple of them are most familiar. I love getting my two dogs, my camera and a pocketful of poo bags and head off on a walk around our area. I have my dogs trained to stop and stand still (most of the time) when I want to take a photo. They are getting quite good at it without too much frustration. We all just like being out and around.
