Holly bought her dad the trike ride birthday gift. It was his 80th birthday so she wanted to do something special for him. An experience rather than an object to gather dust. Graham wanted to go somewhere without too much traffic.
Fred, our trike rider, picked them up from Graham’s home in Freshwater.
Freshwater, Curl Curl, Dee Why etc
Firstly, they rode along the beaches to Curl Curl, Dee Why and Narrabeen. Such pretty beaches and good ones to swim at.
They rode via Narrabeen Lagoon (also referred to as Narrabeen Lake) is Sydney’s Northern Beaches largest estuary system located just behind the world famous surfing beach at Narrabeen. It is a haven for wildlife. So far, the trike ride birthday gift was a lot of fun. Already they had seen so many of the beautiful places many visitors or locals to Sydney don’t get to see.
Warriewood to Church Point
Next, they rode through Warriewood and Mona Vale to Church Point. Aborigines had been here for 14,000 years or more and was discovered by the English in March 1788 by Sydney’s first Governor, Arthur Phillip. He was exploring its lower reaches in search or arable land.
Into Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and amongst the trees West Head. There are incredible views from West Head lookout, regarded as one of Sydney’s best in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. From West Head lookout, you can see Broken Bay on your left, Pittwater on your right and Barrenjoey Headland and Lighthouse in front.
However, the two hours was almost up. Fred rode them south and along the Wakehurst Parkway. We love the Wakehurst Parkway because the legal speed is faster than most Sydney limits. Back via Belrose, Forestville and Brookvale to home. In conclusion, the trike ride birthday gift was the best ever, well up there with the best. Holly wrote, “Thank you so much. It was great!”.
