Sydney Walks - Glebe

Even when I'm traveling on business, I like to make time for exploration.  There is nothing worse than returning from a trip and regretting that you never saw anything outside of the hotel and office.  I commit to getting up 60-90 minutes earlier than I need to in order to take a long walk or check out a neighborhood before work.  It can sometimes be challenging to decide what to do in the limited amount of time available.  I like to pick a place where I can get coffee and make that my target.

During my recent trip to Australia, I decided one morning to get my coffee in Sydney's Glebe neighborhood.  Glebe was about a mile and a half from my hotel in Darling Harbour.

I walked up Pyrmont Bridge Road...
 ...past buildings boasting interesting architecture...
 I saw some roadside statues...
 ...and breathtaking glimpses of the Anzac Bridge in the distance. 
 I walked alongside Wentworth Park and noted the graceful brick arches cutting the park in two.
 Leafy and colorful doorways dotted my path.
 ...as did interesting crests and street numbers...
 After about a 30 minute walk, I arrived at the cross section of Bridge Rd. and Glebe Point Road. 
 Wandering up Glebe Point Road, I noticed this provocative street art.
 
 This sign made me chuckle:  "Permanent or Casual Accommodations".  Casual Accommodations sounds somewhat risque...
I stopped at Naggy's Cafe for a Flat White and sweet treat.
 I especially liked the old threadbare velvet apholstered chairs.
On my way back to the office, I caught a hazy glimpse of the Sydney skyline in the distance.
 I really liked this mural on the side of Glebe Auto Repairs.  I wish my mechanic could juggle.
 I caught another glimpse of the Anzac Bridge and its reflection in the harbour.
 Once I crossed back into Pyrmont, I noticed Bow's Cottage (circa 1870) surrounded by delicate flowers.
This building looked rather hairy and caught my eye.
Overall, I walked about 4.75 miles (about 7.6 km) and felt great about taking a brief excursion to a part of the city I wouldn't have experienced without making this concerted effort.  Where will my next pre-work adventure in Australia lead?
