Stroll to school

Now that most of summer's sting has gone I've been making the most of our lovely walk to E's school. We're pretty lucky because although we do have to go through a across one road and through a railway station carpark it's park almost all the way.

E loves to gambol along, chattering away, and the little lady is usually pretty content to sit back and enjoy the ride. Me? I just love this avenue of shady old trees.

Can't you just imagine folks in their Victorian finery taking a passegiata along here?

The walk only takes about half an hour and involves a trek up one of Marrickville's steepest streets. That's the bit I enjoy the most. The boy may whinge but I love the heart-rate elevation of pushing a stroller up that hill without stopping. So satisfying.
