It is not an usual activity for our family to go for a walk, but it was a nice way to spent an afternoon walking around the Sydney Harbour. There were so much to see, and yet it is so relaxing.

The day that I walked it, there were buskers galore, an aboriginal busker as well playing a didgeridoo and of course the boat traffic which was amazing.
