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.


  1. That is a good way to kill time. We watched that show too. It was interesting.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
