School holidays + autumn – I couldn’t be any happier. Term 1 of this year was a long one and as usual I could not wait for school hols to get here. As luck would have it, the weather seemed to have changed just in time. Autumn in Sydney is fabulous – my absolutely favourite. It is warm and dry and the light is just to die for. Today was our first day on our own so we decided to head off to playground out of our neighbourhood. We tossed around a few ideas (ie – looked at some photos on the computer) and Rushcutters Bay won out. There is a lovely gated playground with bright and colourful equipment, a kiosk guaranteed to be open, and a view that makes you feel like you are on holiday somewhere else. Such a gem so close to the City. We arrived a little before 11am and it was packed with little ones running around everywhere. But as lunch time came and went, the crowds died out and for an hour or so we had the place almost to ourselves. We ended up staying til well into the afternoon. I can’t remember the last time we spent almost five hours at one park. The kids would have stayed longer but dinner called so off we went with promises to return again soon. Such a wonderful start to the holidays. I just know they are going to go by too fast!
Do you have a favourite park? I’d love to capture an afternoon of childhood fun for you and your family. Contact me to book a session.
