Cockatoo Island

November 28 - temperature well below zero and snow on the ground. Walked 100.73 km since last post (minus the unrecorded weekend in NYC, which was at least 40km) It's time to think about a walk last April on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour. In colonial times it has been a convict prison, a major shipbuilding dock, a naval dock and is now a park.
Walked 6.8 km on the Island, from a 19th century prison to a 20th century shipyard.

New York

Nov 14/17. Two days and an evening in the city plus a morning on the E-train - in New York. The best walking city. No record of how many km walked but it was substantial.

Sunday 4 November 2007


November 4th in the cafe at the Waterloo Hotel. Bacon, eggs, potatoes, toast and coffee. I've walked 94.18 km since last post. It's been a while since I last posted though. Walking in Waterloo from the Waterloo hotel to the University of Waterloo. Great walk along Erb road past the Clay and Glass Museum and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, then along the train tracks, through the park and then cutting through the strip malls to the Art building on the U Waterloo Campus. Weather has been great, cool enough for comfortable strolling. I'm going to walk into Kitchener to the Kitchener/Waterloo Art Gallery and then on to the Airport for my flight late this afternoon. Should be about 16 km.
