                                                                           A quieter place was found for refuelling!

            And then it was back to the mundane.

                                                                           Surely coffee was needed at the end of the walk - not this!

  What happened to the warm, sunny day we thought as we set off from Meadowbank Station? When we finally reached the sunny side of the street we felt much better. A short uphill walk took us to the start of the old rail bridge which crossed the Parramatta River. Once across some took the steep stairs with ramp for bicycle wheeling and some the more gentle path down to the street below. This we followed back to the river, under the bridge and up to a small park for morning tea. Here we were entertained by someone exercising and someone doing yoga before we continued on the path by the water. By now the “traffic” was increasing with bicycles, scooters, strollers,joggers and walkers of all ages. They dodged us and we dodged them with no accidents. The still developing Rhodes area was joined to the still developing Wentworth Point by the new Bennelong bridge (a no-car bridge). This we crossed admiring the views of river and more distant Olympic and Bicentennial Parks. As Wentworth Point is a hub of noisy building activity we turned back to have lunch on the more peaceful Rhodes side.

We completed the day’s walk by walking up to a coffee shop near the station. It was a fitting end to the pleasant day.
