Our holiday in New South Wales

September 2007

While we were staying with our son and daughter-in-law in Sydney we did quite a deal of walking around the nearby suburbs. This seemed easier than driving in an area that is not all that familiar to us. Walking is good for our health too, and this holiday was an opportunity to get out walking on a regular basis.

While in Artarmon for ten days we walked into Chatswood several times. This is about a twenty minute stroll from our son’s home. Everywhere we walked we took great delight in looking into people’s gardens. We delight in this activity wherever we go. It is very cheap entertainment and the exercise is good for our health.

Around Artarmon we were constantly amazed at what people had growing in their gardens. Many of the plants we saw would be very hard, if not impossible, to grow in the much harsher conditions at home here in Murray Bridge in South Australia.

We even struck up a conversation with several people, and one kind gentleman gave my wife some orchid flowers.
