a long walk

Today I walked from Huntley's point across the Gladesville bridge,  then on to Birkenhead Point,  across the Iron Cove bridge and  all the way to Birchgrove & Balmain - nearly 14 km all up. I went with a friend and it's part 4 of our quest to explore both sides of the Parramatta river which leads into Sydney Harbour. It was a really pleasant day- I always love walking near the water. We discovered places where we hadn't been & saw things that were familiar  (like the harbour bridge) from new perspectives.
I'm not sure when we'll go again or where we'll start & finish next time but it's such a great thing to do & as we've both lived in Sydney for all our lives it feels great that we can still visit places that we haven't been.

Here are some of the things we saw as we wandered over bridges & around the foreshore. 


  1. This is such a wonderful idea, to walk and explore with a friend. You've really captured the essence of your beautiful area.

  2. I love seeing all the beautiful views and scenes you found on your walk. But what is that circular structure in the next-to-last image? Is that an art installation? Does it move in the wind? It's fascinating!

    1. It's a fixed structure- it was part of a factory or something that used to be in that space- I think :)

  3. What a wonderful walk!
    You live in such a beautiful part of the world, Leanne.

  4. that sounds a fantastic walk, I am very jealous! looks like you had a great time, love the photos
