Here we are back at Central station. Just missed the train and another hour to wait, so headed off to the refreshment rooms for yet another cuppa and I spotted my last lines for the day. The end of my big city adventure.
I quickly tired of the department stores and headed to something more to my taste ... Dymocks bookshop. I am thinking of starting a series on books and bookshops ... will have more success with that than city lines I reckon.
I've still got some time to kill so lets catch the train back to Town Hall and go shopping. This is the view from the other side of Circular Quay railway station. The city seems to be showcasing weeds in their planter boxes this spring. They will be pretty when the weeds flower and should have no trouble growing.
It is a Mediterranean style home (except for the portico entrance) built in the 1920s so interior is arts and craft. Unfortunately they would not let me photograph inside. It has been furnished in the 1920-30s period.
There are lots of posh houses and apartments in Neutral Bay, like the one above. I am over this way to visit Nutcote the home of May Gibbs, creator of Snugglepot and Cuddle Pie. Her home is somewhat more modest.
