Ten minutes out of the city we parked and bimbled Balmoral.
Now that’s what you call a raft.
The Boatshed Cafe.
Balmoral is a popular beach for locals and tourists alike.
We settled in front of this amazing tree to people watch and enjoy an ice cream.
To our far left, the sandstone we have come to see everywhere.
Looking left out of the bay. To the right, the turning toward Sydney.
Rear centre we could see the light we passed on the way to Spit Bridge.
Blue arrow – where Beez Neez is in Cammeray. Yellow arrow – Spit Bridge. Red arrow – Balmoral.
1922 tram to Balmoral. [this picture comes from the State Records Authority of NSW]. All that is left today of the tram line.
Bimbling back to the car we stood under a ginormous rubber plant.....
Wherever we’ve been so far in Sydney, we have never been too far from a park or green space. No exception here as we parked the car in front of this huge, well kept green area – the beach behind us beyond more greenery and trees.
On our way home we couldn’t resist this chap above a chiropractors.
Parked and looking along the road from the marina steps. Looking down on the mooring field. Accompanied – of course by a noisy friend.
ALL IN ALL A LOVELY PLACE TO ENJOY AN ICE CREAM
THE WATER IS NOT WHAT YOU WOULD CALL WARM
