(Gosford walkies #22)
Peeks Point is the next point over from Point Frederick (AKA Longnose). The suburb at Peeks Point is officially called East Gosford but some of the residents call it Peeks Point. Sounds classier.
Friendship Path through the waterfront reserve off Russell Drysdale Street. Nice winding boardwalk through the pines and mangroves.
Drysdale was an Australian painter. Born in England in 1912, lived in Melbourne, painted some stuff, carked it in 1983. I like Man feeding his dogs.
Yes, but is it art?
Sculpture and/or bundle of stakes outside the Edogawa Gardens. Nice soft weathered greys.
Edogawa Gardens. It's got a wee artificial lake with koi fish (carp) and one of them raked stone gardens thingies.
Might poke my head in next autumn and see if they've got those miniature maple type trees that get red leaves in autumn.
Longnose from beside the Edogawa Gardens. Longnose in the middle distance and the point Clare ridge behind.
Ironbark Point from Wharf Street. Ironbark Point's just north of Green Point. Not a lot of public views available at Peeks Point. It's mainly built right down to the water, except the bit beside the Edogawa Gardens.
Peeks Point is not architecturally exciting. A dearth of nice old bungalows and cottage and a plentitude of seventies and eighties houses and flats plus some nineties and noughties mansions on the water. But there been and will be more exciting suburbs. I've got plenty of unexplored streets yet.
On Friday I said the 40th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan was on Saturday. I was talking out of my arse. It was Sunday.
