Riverside Walking Track, Lane Cove, Sydney

In Sydney there was a period of average weather with rain over the Christmas period. Compared to some winter areas of the world at this time of year, we are typically enjoying the beach or sun. But summer is also the wettest season of the year in South-East Australia.

I saw a break in the rain of two days and thought to myself, ‘FREEDOM, NATURE, WALKS!’

In Sydney we are blessed to have a big city with the environment interspersed within the metropolitan area. The negative to this is that the urban area is GIGANTIC (I read recently that the population is 1/3 the size of Buenos Aires, Argentina but the area is 3 times bigger – do the math on that one). A travel time of 2 or even 3 hours between suburbs occurs.

So I ventured to a walking track I had never taken before. It is an easier hike close to the businesses and homes of many who get caught up in their busy lives while forgetting nature. It’s located in the northern suburbs next to Macquarie Park, an area that has recently seen lots of urban development – but not in this national park.

Here is a little gallery of my walk, filled with lizards and birds where I could capture them. This was something I adored as many lizards were attempting to warm their cold blood in the cloudy sunshine on that day – just like the human I am. Nature called us.

My gallery ends with the city centre, where you could say my walking track ended (kind of, as I still had to catch a train there). It was so close that any visitor or resident should go walk the park with a river that enters into the famous estuary of Sydney Harbour.

The World is an amazing place filled with adventure, awe and excitement. As a child I dreamt that I would see every country, every crevice of the globe. And now? Now I continue to fulfil that dream...I would like to share that journey with you in some small part...
