As always, walking is incredibly good for my mindset. The things I see soothe, inspire and energise.
Here are some of the sights I saw this week….
The beautiful colours of native Aussie flora. For those of us who live in more urban areas it is a wonderful thing to have such colours brightening up our city streets.
Another iconic Australian sight. The Darrell Lea Chocolate Shop. Unfortunately, this company has now gone into administration and may close many of its stores. Sad. Many of my best childhood memories are associated with choccies bought from Darrell Lea. Gabrielle Bryden says it better than I ever could.
More famous Aussie stuff. Harry’s Cafe de Wheels. Famous for its pies ‘n peas. I love the neon sign.
Now for something definitely not Australian. The Apple Store in George Street. I always think it looks like something from an Aldous Huxley novel. The Brave New Apple World. I use Apple products myself but sometimes find I am uncomfortable with the slightly cultish aspects of the brand.
Hail to thee Almighty Apple.
Wind sock. I love this photo. It seems so jolly. Swooping and swerving away for all it’s worth.
This photo was taken in a back lane near my house, but for a moment I felt transported to Tuscany. Che bella!
I saw this cockatoo on the wire and thought he was stuck or injured, but he was doing acrobatics. He spun and spun as if someone had wound him with a key. I’m sure he was one of the lead acrobats in the Cockatoo Cirque Du Soleil.
Thanks for coming on another walk with me. It was long overdue.
