Andrews and Zane's flight from LA was cancelled so they won't be home until Friday.
As the temperature will be a bit warmer over the next couple of days, and I had just remembered some newly potted plants that I wasn't sure of where they were at home, I thought I might dash home to check on them.
As I had my camera I took the opportunity to do the ' tourist ' bit and have a squiss around Parramatta.
|Lake Parramatta Reserve.|
|Part of the Parramatta Female Factory. This piece of the inside of the|
external walls is, I think, the only remaining piece left.
|The top angle of the stone was shaved off to stop the women from climbing|
up and over the wall, as some women did.
|Lennox Bridge was constructed with convict labour over the period 1836 to 1839, making it one of the oldest bridges in Australia.|
All the following photos are in Parramatta park.
|In 1818, this house as you see it now, was built around the original farm cottage|
of George Salter who built his cottage between 1798 and 1806.
|Old Government House is Australia's oldest publicly-owned building. |
The original building collapsed and in 1799 Governor Hunter replaced it with
the Georgian structure present today.
