While rock climbing and kayaking might be more adventurous, there is something I like about a true everyday adventure. On Sunday morning I had a kids birthday party at Lavender Bay and made the most of it by including a short walk around Milsons Point and the Lavender Bay foreshore in Sydney. The walk itself is very short, but perfect for the kids with lots of things to see, touch and hear: the Sydney Harbour Bridge towering above you; trains rattling loudly over the bridge; the distinctive sound of a Sydney ferry horn; people out for their morning swim at old North Sydney Pool; kids squealing at Luna Park; native flowers; even sculptures along the path outside Wendy’s Secret Garden.
Something about having kids and writing this blog has helped me to appreciate the little things that are all around us. I’ve shared a gallery of photos from the walk below.
