A few weeks ago I went with Span on a cycling trip from Macquarie to Kiama.
This is a great trip, you catch the train to Macquarie for the start then ride through beautiful rolling hills to the Robertson Hotel for the night. Actually those hills tended to roll far more up than down, but it meant dinner was really appreciated!
On the weekend I joined up with a photographic shoot with the Sydney photography forum group on Cockatoo Island. The island has been used for various ship-building and convict activities since around 1850 and there was lots of equipment in various states of rust and disrepair and interesting building. For some reason, I find aging metal has the most beautiful colours. The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority is in the process of restoring it. In the meantime it has just been reopened, things aren’t yet fenced off so it is the perfect time to have a look.(more…)
Wiseman’s Ferry is a great area for cycling, both on the road and mountain biking.
After much running around, getting cold, and seeing lots of fantastic sea things I now have my open water accreditation; the gateway to what seems like a whole new world!…
