Recently I had the opportunity for an evening stroll around an area of Sydney called Lavender Bay. On my walk down from North Sydney I passed this Secret Garden, complete with lavender plants. Not sure about the signage.
Here I caught a glimpse of the boats moored in the Bay. The Sydney Harbour Bridge and Luna Park formed a spectacular backdrop. Lavendar Bay is on the north side of the harbour, to the west of the Bridge, and has a good view of the city.
Notice anything alarming about the roof of this boat? A snake. Someone’s idea of a joke, or perhaps in lieu of a guard dog?
From this wharf we have a good view of the Harbour Bridge and the central business district on the south side of the harbour.
Here you can see the walkway which goes around past Luna Park and under the northern side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Milsons Point is crammed with apartment blocks jockeying for a good view.
Looking back at Lavender Bay at dusk.
In the next post we will take a closer look at Luna Park and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. You can read more about my evening walk by the harbour and view the out-takes in a post called Finding Focus on my May and September Blog.
