Life This Week 10/6/2019: Barangaroo.

Here's to public holiday Mondays!  I've woken up to nothing but the birds chirping, the kettle being put on and the occasional chatter of the early morning walkers from behind the back gate.



On Sunday, Master SSG and I took advantage of the sun and $2.70 all day public transport.  We started off in Walsh Bay which holds many fond memories for me because it was one of the first places I got to know in Sydney.


There are some beautiful sculptures dotted along the wharf now.



The contrast of metal being used for art but also function along the wharf dovetails perfectly with how the area is now a centre for the arts with theatres and dance studies nestled in between the eateries and apartments.


Then we walked down the road to Barangaroo.  Sun, that skyline, footpaths and low walls just made for exploring.  Sydney, when you get it right, you really get it right.


We paused for a moment to watch a ferry and a paddle steamer on the water.


Before hitting the stairs.


It's so exciting seeing the new vision for the city unfold.  Beyond the park are construction sights with the hints of new skyscrapers confidently reaching upward.


But at ground level the limestone walls are an ever present reminder of the history of the local area.


Is there an area of your city that's undergoing a bit of a transformation at the moment?

  2. They've certainly done some amazing things with that part of town. It has been, as you say, transformed.

  3. Hi SSG! Watsons Bay holds many beautiful childhood memories for me. We lived on the lower north shore so would catch the bus into the city and then the ferry to Watsons Bay for fish and chips. I miss the harbour city and need to get back for a visit. Enjoy your week and thanks for the memories. #lifethisweek

  4. I haven't been to Barangaroo for almost a year - I bet it's changed a lot since then! I must say, I really love what they've done with the area and how good are $2.70 Sundays!

  6. IF my feet had not let me down the Sunday arvo I was there for Vivid I would have loved to visit Barangaroo. I knew so much of the wharf area as my granddaughter appeared in a play at Theatre of Young People in 2014. I also attended a few years of the Sydney Writers Festival there too. Saw Barangaroo start...need to have a special visit back I think.

    Thanks for linking up for #lifethisweek. Next week's optional prompt is: 24/51 Thank You to Me. 17/6/19 Denyse
