Yesterday was hot in Sydney. So I looked for a walk for family night that was by the water. Part of the Great Coastal Walk is from Gladesville Bridge to Ryde Bridge with walks along the Parramatta River.
While I was looking at the map, I noticed there was a car ferry from Putney to Mortlake (the last one in metropolitan Sydney). Earlier in January we had taken the Webb’s Creek ferry to the campsite for our church’s junior and teen camps. Why not try out this “Putney Punt”?
We ate fish finger butties in the car as we drove to Putney. We saw rowboats and ferries making their way up and down the river as we waited for the ferry to return from the Mortlake side, and then onto the ferry we went. We had the car windows down and there was a lovely breeze blowing through the car.
Our walk took us along the Parramatta River in Breakfast Point – a old suburb with lots of new developments.
We had a lovely walk and Lizzie, our dog, really enjoyed herself.
I think I might start a mini-album of our walks – you just can’t have too many memory-making projects, can you?
Till next time
