Ferry Ride 1 of 3

I am on the ferry at last, heading over to Neutral Bay.  That is the Museum of Contemporary Art in the background.

Strolling 3 of 3

These little dots in the pavement show the shoreline in 1788 when Captain Cook arrived.  If you look at the photo I posted yesterday you can see them at the right of the photo to get an idea of how far it has moved.

Strolling 2 of 3

It is this part of Sydney that makes me fall in love with it again and again.

Strolling 1 of 3

The ferry I wanted to catch was nearly an hour away so I killed some time taking a stroll along Writers Walk which runs around the waterfront. I've been watching the ABC TV series Brilliant Creatures

"Howard Jacobson explores four cultural iconoclasts: satirist Barry Humphries, art critic Bob Hughes, feminist/academic Germaine Greer & writer/broadcaster Clive James, who left Australia in the 50s & 60s to change the world."

In the first episode he makes the point of how nice it is for these people who are still alive to be recognised in this way (unlike in the old country) but I have selected to show the tile of one of the old-timers.
