Went to Kincumber on the weekend. Over The Rip bridge from Woy Woy to Daleys Point, past the ramp down to St Huberts Island, winding along Empire Bay Drive, round past Empire Bay and Bensville, down Mackillop Road and Humphreys Road to the old orphanage at Kincumber South. A still day, with the water like a mirror. Proper winter cold in the morning then a warm sun in a blue sky.
On the left of the photo we're looking across Cockle Channel in the general direction of Empire Bay. The mangroves on the right are Davistown.
Taken from the ferry wharf at the end of Humphreys Road. The old orphanage and Holy Cross church are just up the hill behind the camera.
Looking across Cockle Channel at Davistown. Looks like those houses are on Kincumber Crescent and Amy Street. Along the bottom of the photo are rock oysters. They're all over Brisbane Water. You gotta get up bloody early to beat the seagulls to them.
Taken from just beside the ferry wharf.
Davistown on the left. Looks like Yattalunga in the distance. Taken from the same spot.
After that we went back to Gosford. This is a row of terraces perhaps five years old in Broadview Avenue. Terraces are all over Sydney in the 19th century suburbs. They're one of my favourites and it's good to see such a nice bit of retro on the Central Coast.
