The Iron Cove Bay Run (Take II)

The forecast suggested ‘showers’ for Sydney yesterday morning but, Bella and I decided to risk the Bay Run Walk, anyway. And, because we’re such risk takers, we didn’t even take an umbrella. Controversial! I like to live on the edge.

The last time I posted about the Bay Run Walk was in March last year. I must have been playing around with an iPhone ap’ at the time, because all the images have a retro-ish feel to them. (You can see the post here if you’re interested.) This time, I took a real camera.

Where's my ball?

She’s desperately hoping I didn’t lose her ball AGAIN. I did. My throwing arm is not going to get me far.

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. (Joseph Addison)

Recently, I have been reading about the importance of incidental exercise on long-term health. I note in my last Bay Walk post that, at the time, I was managing to complete the 7 kilometre circuit 2 – 3 times a week. It seems I have fallen off the wagon. Today was the first time in a while… I had almost forgotten how lovely it is.

Those pictures are absolutely gorgeous! And, I love the quote, too! Poor Bella. I hope you got her another ball!

Thank you! I was pretty impressed with myself, SSFAM. I am no photographer!

Bella has many, many balls!

Your dawg is loverly – and your photography aint bad either. Who taught you that skill?

She IS loverly, isn’t she?

I surprised myself with the pics – but the web is quite forgiving!

I too have been for a lovely beach walk this morning, must do it more often! Thank you for another glimpse into Sydney life. K

Awww – bless your cotton socks, K! 🙂

I want your dog!! So so sweet. I also need to do this walk ( i won’t pretend to run!) I have not yet managed to do it.

She’s quite gorgeous, isn’t she?

She doesn’t need any excuse to do the Bay Walk if you want some company…

i may take you up on that 🙂

Gorgeous photos. Brings back great memories of walking the bay in Sydney.

And, yes, we do tend to forget to “stop and smell the roses” with respect to the things we see everyday. But you do have a truly beautiful resource where your live.

Thanks, J. There is no arguing that Sydney is gorgeous. I feel lucky to live here every time I see the harbour…

Beautiful pics of a beautiful place, TSL! I was actually there yesterday and kept an eye out for you & Bella – one day we will run (walk) into each other for sure! 😉

I always keep a weather eye out for ‘pinkies’, Sparks…

One of the nicer parts of Sydney, a great place for a walk 🙂
