Some photos of Helensburgh taken on way to Sea Cliff Bridge walk

Here are a few of the photos of Helensburgh taken last Monday.  I went on a walk over the the Sea Cliff Bridge with a group of old friends and fellow walkers.  We took the train from Town Hall Station in Sydney and alighted at Helensburgh Station where we walked to the Sea Cliff Bridge.

Helensburgh is a pretty little town, surrounded by towering cliffs and sea.

After the last post I thought I would post something which is more cheerful.

 

Some bright flowers in my rockery.  I don't know their botanical name.
