Birkenhead Point bridges

Sunday morning ride

Birkenhead Point bridges
Old bridge, new bridge

Sunday morning I decided to wheel the Yammie 650 out of its stable and give it a run.  With Ruth on the back, we set off on a briskly cool morning and were heading for the new(ish) village on Parramatta River called Birkenhead Point.

Thirty minutes later we arrived and strolled around the shopping centre, eventually settling on a cafe at the end of the mall where we enjoyed a coffee.  Our table was near the window and the sun streamed in, warming us nicely after the ride.
The wharf nearby beckoned, so after coffee we walked around, enjoying the sights of the boats moored in the marina.  The end of our walk took us to a small park underneath the new bridge that spans the river parallel to the old Iron Cove Bridge (left).
It was one of those mornings when it feels really great to be alive.  We were both feeling bourne up by the fresh and sunny feel of the morning.
On our return walk to the shopping mall we called in on the Kathmandu store and I bought a new sweater to replace the old one I was wearing, as it was looking somewhat worn out and shapeless.
Our return home was via Concord Road after a nice detour past Five Dock.
What a lovely morning.
