weekend walks: northbridge park
This weekend walk would have to be the most uneventful and “boring” walk we have done in Sydney. It sounds horrible for us to say it but it was! There was lovely scenery in parts but only for the first half – the rest of the walk was very much just trying to beat the storm clouds back to the car, hiking through suburbia.
To be fair, we were not really in the state of mind to be walking but we needed to stay motivated to remember that this is contributing to our “training” for the Camino (as a side note, would like to say that we have less than halfway to go on our fundraising target – YAY! Thank you to everyone who has donated).
Anyway, hope you enjoy some of our photos as we walked from Cammeray Bridge through Northbridge Park along Long Bay up around to Sailors Bay before returning to the car at Cammeray Bridge.

Sometimes it takes a boring walk, to appreciate the interesting ones even more… 😀 BTW, the photographs are definitely not boring…in fact they are great! 🙂

Thank you!! You are right about the ‘boring’ ones making us appreciate the others more 🙂 maybe if we looked at it differently we needn’t call anything boring 🙂

Your views of the harbour are lovely. Have a great time in Brazil. I’m looking forward to reading all about your adventure.

Thank you 🙂 Off on the epic flight tonight – think its about 36 before we arrive at our last stop! Yikes – not looking forward to that one bit!

Nothing about your photos says ‘Boring Sydney’ to me-great pictures for a uninspiring walk! Looking forward to your Brazilian adventures.

Guess it was ‘less eventful’ than any of our other walks! Maybe ‘boring’ wasn’t the best word to use 😉
Thanks for stopping by!

I am not much of an urban walker either. Fortunately our property backs up to national forest. It’s like having the wilderness at your doorstep. I did think your photographs were quite beautiful. I look forward to your Brazil adventure. Peggy and I did a boat trip out of Manaus on the Amazon. It was a great experience. –Curt

How lucky you are to have a forest right behind you 🙂 Walking in the ‘wild’ just gives such an adventure!!
Unfortunately we won’t be getting to the Amazon on this trip! We did experience some of it when we were in Peru.
Brazil – this time is very much a World Cup experience. So might pop over to your blog to see if I we can locate your posts about The Amazon 🙂

Ah, I did read you were heading for the World Cup. That should be exciting. Here’s the Amazon blog. I think there are three more with it. http://wandering-through-time-and-place.me/2012/06/06/an-amazon-boa-went-slithering-by-the-passport-series/

the pictures DONT say boring!
June 9, 2014 at 9:08 pm
hehehe – we chose the best of them!! Compared to all our other walks, there was always something eventful or we learnt something new. So this just seemed “less exciting” (hope that’s a better choice of words). 🙂

I guess it’s very common in Australia….a nice walk starts out scenic but two hours in the weather starts to turn ghastly. That was what happened today in Melbourne – sun shining and then the frigid wind came 😀 Love the photos, at least you had great scenery to look at!

Thanks Mabel! The rapid change in weather drives us insane – it can ruin social and laundry plans 😉
Hope you had a great long weekend!

Haha, it’s getting really cold in Melbourne. Not a fan of it but the weekend’s been great. Hope you had a good one too, and looking forward to hearing from you in Brazil. World Cup! 😀

Yep, getting cold in Sydney too. Glad to be escaping soon…. 2 more sleeps til we are on that plane out of here 🙂
