Rivercat to Parramatta

| | Comments (1)

The trip from Sydney to Parramatta isn't something I ever had the need to do.  And if I was to have done it, I'd have taken the train because it's so much faster.  So I'd never taken the Rivercat to Parramatta.  But on this day, it was such a lovely day and Mum and I had nothing better to do anyway, so we did it!

It was a lovely day. I was impressed by all your notes on the photos, some of which I hadn't heard of before.
