(Woy Woy Walk #75)
Bit cooler today so I toddled off. We didn't get the promised storm yesterday but there was a bit of a cool breeze last night. Today is grey and overcast.
Got a couple of views of the old shingled place down on Orange Grove Road. It's listed in my hist list as "hospital (part): former house, Rock Davis ... 1860s". From Orange Grove Road you can only see the roof. The gate's at the end of Cedar Crescent and the block runs from Orange Grove Road down to the water. The old building is heritage listed according to local rumour and the way the new wall and the building don't touch it makes me think the rumour's true.
(Big version (pissy resolution))
Detail of the shingled roof. Shingles were made from thin wood or slate slab. These are slate.
These are wooden shingles on the roof of a house on McMasters Road. Taken last week.
Detail of the iron lace. Iron lace is cast or wrought iron veranda railings and other bits on the exterior of a house. It is much loved.
Wandered off to the foreshore near Blackwall Mountain. There's a lovely old house there painted in Federation cream and red. Could I find the bastard? I could not.
Lurked in the park for a bit enjoying the mistiness and the colours of a grey day. It was low tide and you could see just how shallow most of the water round the Peninsula is.
More mudflats, Saratoga (hill) and St Huberts Island from Blackwall Road above Blackwall Point. That looks like Green Point in the right background.
