A Long Walk

On Sunday Em and I took Toby for a looong walk from Yarraville to Williamstown, which is about a 10k return trip. It was perfect strolling weather; weak winter sun and a slight breeze. We live around the corner from the West Gate Bridge, so tens minutes after closing the back door we were under the shadow of the mighty spans. Every girl and her dog was out yesterday, lots of kids on bikes and people jogging, pushing prams or fishing. It's so lovely to live near the water again. I especially like the industrial landscape of our neighbourhood (though I don't like what it does to the environment). There's lots of abandoned factories and warehouses, smoke stacks and tankers. Here's some wonderful photos Em took on the way and back. Seeing the beautiful cloud was a bonus.
