This Sunday we will take a hike around Harold Reid Reserve, Castle Cove.
This is a very pretty and interesting bush walk, at 5kms it is a bit shorter than our usual walks but a request was made for a bush walk and this combines bush with lovely views and a smidgen of history.
Meet at 8am at the end of Sugarloaf Crescent, Castle Cove, plenty of on street parking, the pathway is cleverly disguised - this is one of those lovely 'hidden treasures' in our midst.
NEUTRAL BAY This Sunday we explore Neutral Bay but not as we have before............we have approx 6kms of walking, some hills, parks, steps, and some water views balanced by some short exposure to the expressway. Start at Milson Park in McDougall Street, near the 18' Skiff Club, where we will have coffee after our walk. I am not sure if the parking is metered, so bring some money in case. Be there or be square! Here's the link: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1860784433 B.
ROSEVILLE BECKONS This will be our last Sunday morning walk until November....meantime email each other if you have a walk to share on Sundays. Let's see if Sunday Nov 12th suits most people for an end of year brunch at our place - if we don't see you on the weekend please email to let us know if you can make it. Probably best to get in early rather than wait till closer to Christmas. This Sunday we are discovering some bush areas beginning in Roseville Chase. Meet near 15 Normac Street, Roseville, near the access to Roseville Marina and, Echo on the Marina cafe(echoonthemarina.com.au)The road is quite narrow with twists and turns but there is parking on the side of the road and a small parking area. From Normac Street we will cross Boundary Road and skirt Roseville Golf Course before some bush walking on Two Creeks Track by the water under the Roseville Bridge. There will be hills and bush tracks as well as some street walking(!) In the sunshine Echo on the Marina is a wonderful venue for coffee. Here's the link:http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/735019745
WHERE'S THE SCULPTURE? There is no sculpture exhibition but we can still enjoy the harbour views on this lovely walk beginning on the corner of Woolcott St. and Balls Head Road where there is plenty of free parking. Here's the link: http://www.mapmyrun.com/workout/1755784502
BEAUTIFUL NORTH HEAD This Sunday the Sydney Marathon is on and the Bridge is closed so we thought we would head far away from the madding crowds..........fingers crossed. This North Head loop is approx 6 kms, and, as far as everyone can remember, not very steep or challenging. I have been wanting to do this walk for ages, looking forward to it. Meet at the Bella Vista cafe on North Head Scenic Drive, just past the Hole in the Wall track, at the usual time of 8am. Don't know about paying for parking , the North Fort car park is just past the cafe, so bring money in case. Let's hope for another stunning Sydney Sunday.

EVER SEEN A QUAKERS HAT? This Sunday could be your opportunity................Beauty Point is very aptly named and has a lovely bush track leading to the Quakers Hat. Magnificent middle harbour vistas and spectacular views through the Heads keep our minds off a few steps and hills on this walk. It is only a shortie but a goodie. To start the walk we have a narrow bush track, then we need our street cred as we cross Military Road to the Balmoral side and proceed to The Spit for coffee. Meet in Pearl Bay Avenue Mosman, near Moss Lane, at 8am. If coming from the city on Military Road, take the second left turn after Medusa Street, half way down the Spit Bridge hill , parking should be plentiful.
