Walked through the door to check out my local beach, or more so the hinterland surrounding it. I found some interesting things.
Can’t forget to post a photo of my hometown. This was taken during Australia’s recent bushfire season (which now seems so long ago). The sky is so orange because of the smoke on the Harbour during the crack of dawn. I’m on a ferry going under the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Opera House in the distance.
Here are a few more photos of my neighbourhood of Newtown. As you can see there is a lots of graffiti in the area
The are of Newtown in which I live, postcode 2042, is starting to pick up again slowly post Covid. Unfortunately the bars are mostly shut, retail and restaurants are much the same.
In the meantime there is plenty of opportunity to walk the streets and reel off a few photos of my neighbourhood which I thought I’d share.
If your able and allowed to, go take a look at your area. I’m sure there is plenty of interesting things to see that we usually take for granted
After the recent discover of my new found “Passion” for jogging I decided to step it up to something a little more intense, cross country. Cross country for the uninitiated brings all the boring elements that is jogging and adds a few extras such as hills, snakes and rocks to trip over and hurt oneself.
I headed down to Botany National Park, if not familiar with Botany Bay its where Captain Cook first anchored in what is now named Australia.
Fortunately the snakes feared me and slithered away, the rocks did not trip me and I managed to get up the hills. I have included a few snapshots of the park while pausing during my run to hyperventilate.
