... with open eyes, and a generous heart, there is awe 'round many a corner ...

Although my heart and sense of balance continue to challenge me, we braved this short hike even at the sacrifice of the ferry ride out to The Basin which we saved for another day. This gave us room for a view from just below the Barrenjoey Lighthouse with Palm Beach to the left and Pittwater to the right. Although this is still a suburb of Sydney, the CBD which is over the horizon about mid-centre, is about an hour's drive. Behind us is the magnificent Broken Bay which is where the Hawkesbury River empties into the Pacific Ocean. To get a feel for the early white settlement of this area, read Kate Grenville's "The Secret River".
