So much variety

The other day I was walking on the rim of a World Heritage Area and the next day I pedalled my bike around here -

This is the rowing course built for the Sydney Olympic games in 2000.
It's very cool!

It's also very flat!

There is some dry-land rowing in case you don't want to get wet!

And other play equipment for grown-ups.

Hey! What are you looking at?

Oh, yeah - ducks!

 And pelicans.

Sometimes you can get a cuppa over there - but not today.

Oh well, you can't have everything!

But seriously, it's a great facility for this part of Sydney. It used to be a wasteland, a sand mining area, a no-go zone. And now there picnic areas, there is hanggliding, canoe hire, a whitewater course and so many trees - they must have planted thousands of trees and now 12 years later they are well-grown up.
I love it!
