After Ewe and I saw Baywatch, we decided to walk home for reasons that are beyond me. I think I mostly wanted to get away from the large amount of people outside of the cinema.
And so walking we started and verily did so with vigour. Well, as much vigour as we could, considering our condition at the time.
It was a long, lengthy walk full of scenic scenes and other things that are in a walk some of the time.
So we headed down from Greater Union on George Street and gradually made our way to Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour. On the way I asked why we were walking that way to Darling Harbour as the way that we were going lead a little away from where we wanted to be, which was most likely Pyrmont Bridge so we could more directly go to Anzac Bridge, which we decided to walk across on the way home.
Anyway, we reached Tumbalong Park and started walking around it when we were talking about how far off course we were, when Ewe mentioned we could take a lift nearby to get out of Darling Harbour, which we did.
On the way to the lift we took note of how Darling Harbour was changing, with some of the changes seeming much more superfluous than others.
Once out of the lift I took a couple of photos somehow and then we continued to walk.
It was slow going. I’m certain that we were walking faster than it felt, because it felt like the walking was taking a long time.
We followed the walkway that we were on, then went up some stairs that took us over a road. It began to rain and it wasn’t long before the rain was heavy.
We hid out under some playground equipment as it was the driest place that we could find. We were there for a few minutes with rain getting to us quite easily until Ewe noticed that we could easily wait it out under an overpass that was a few metres nearby, so we did.
We talked about risking getting wet whilst we waited, but thankfully the rain eased up much sooner than I thought and off we went back on our walk.
We went down a few back streets and somehow crossed a busy road without getting hit before going along more back streets and ending up near the Anzac Bridge and marveling at some park area that we could see.
Just before this, Ewe liked the look of the end of a street, so he took a photo but was disappointed as it didn’t look as good as it did in his thoughts.
Anyway, we reached Anzac Bridge and then crossed it before parting ways. Whilst we were crossing I looked at the horizon on one side and thought it was cool that I could see the sunset colours, even though I couldn’t.
It was a long walk as it was not as direct as it should have been, but we got to see some stuff we don’t normally see.
I thought that writing about this would produce something more interesting than this as the walk was quite enjoyable. We talked about stuff, got confused, laughed and overall had a good time.
There were a number of times where we expressed surprise at how long our walk was, but we still found it to be enjoyable.
