29 SEPTEMBER 2011 : ESTAP : IDLING IN SYDNEY

A RAMBLING LOOK BACK OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS.

Just around the corner is a café. CAFÉ ON JOHNSTON .

We have had the BEST treatment there.  They think on their feet. Come up with excellent dishes. Remember our favourites and the things we don’t like.

Today I had corn fritters with mushrooms and roasted vegetable salad. Spot on !

It’s a fine thing walking a city street and sitting down to a good lunch like this. I also get my fruit juice with double ginger and do not have to explain it in detail.

I went to the Northern Beaches and was given morning tea. I have a strong liking for  sweet things and tea with rose and floral flavours.

A  week visit to a Home City is disconcerting in many ways. Glancing visits to people and places and some people and places missed entirely.

I have had one go at the Inner City bus trip. I am rather experienced at them. Some wild decadence in the city but not as much as I had expected. How good will it be if the monoliths are truly crumbling ?

I don’t think I have anything inspirational to say at this time so I shall simply post pics and links and maybe an odd comment.
THIS THEN IS SYDNEY IN BRIEF.
 

THE ROCKS.

The Rocks, in the heart of Australia’s most cosmopolitan city, encompasses the past, present and future. The Indigenous Cadigal people inhabited the rocky headland and surrounding shoreline for thousands of years. Then in 1788, Australia’s first European settlers-British convicts and their overseers-claimed the land and built their camp atop the sandstone cliffs.

The Rocks eventually grew from an open-air gaol into a vibrant port community. Its colourful history-filled with tales of ‘shanghaied’ sailors, rough gangs, and gritty life-can still be traced in the many surviving buildings from the last two centuries.
