Watson's Bay fragrant white flowered creeper is all over
Watched TV till 03:00 after doing the Blog - an old b&w US thriller about a escaped convict on the run.

We set the alarm this time to try and catch most of any sun at the beach, and got up half a hour it went off at 10:30.
But, it was cloudy again!
Showered and had tea and toast and out at 11:30. Got to Circular Key for but just missed a ferry for Watsons' Bay so killed an hour wandering round The Rocks - didn't have time to book the Bridge Climb.
Was still cloudy, but warmer Watson's Bay for 13:30ish and wandered up the road to Camp Cove and Lady Jane beach - was hardly anyone around for once.
As the tide was in we found a spot on the rocks off the headland trail and caught any minor breaks in the cloud - was enough to colour our heads a bit more.
Then walked up the trail and found the lighthouse and cottages - now unused since the advent of GPS.
The trail was littered with wild honeysuckle and nasturiums.

Got back to the ferry point for 17:30 and had fish and chips from the

Cam Cove - old fig tree
famous Doyles.

We had to get the bus back into town - scenic but windy!
Got off earlier than Circular Key as we'd hit the Friday weekend getaway traffic - much quicker to walk.

Decided to go out earlier to a different part of Sydney this time.
Ended up in Kensington - very Victorian with spralling parks and groups of terraced house with elaborate iron railings.
