Ship pulls away from the shore
And so endeth my bushwalk around Little Sirius Cove in the harbourside suburb of Mosman. I bought a chocolate paddle pop - one of my many addictions - and waited for the small zoo ferry (known as the 'Lady' class) to arrive from Circular Quay for another load of passengers. Our green and gold lady for today is the 'Lady Northcott'.
We chugged away from the Athol Street ferry wharf at the 'bottom' of the zoo, and as we slooped through the harbour, we were rapidly overtaken by the much larger ferry on the Manly run, 'Freshwater'.
My closing image is the obverse/yang of my opening image: I open with a view from the zoo to the city; I close with a view from the ferry to the bush that softens Taronga Zoological Gardens, with just the scar of the chairlift slicing through the bush.
