My walking stick used to be floral but the heat shrink decorating it has faded and it's now an ugly grey with a few sad flowers still visible at the bottom. I have been thinking I would like to get a new one (or find a way to fix the old) but it was functional so I haven't really made the effort.
A lady advertised free walking sticks, I'm not sure how she got around facebooks ban on advertising mobility aids but she did and we took a drive to pick up a new stick.
We went to the old, harbourside suburb of Balmain, you might be able to see the garage door in the photo below. It was at the bottom of the "steepest street in Balmain" I don't know who determined it to be the steepest street but I was convinced.
There was a little dog who greeted us enthusiatically and then ran into the waterside park.
On the way home we stopped to try Nutie Donuts - oven baked, wholefood, gluten free and delicious.
The smiley face walking stick was the only one left after I picked a black and red one. It's earmarked for a friend of mine but if she doesn't want it, I won't mind having a happy spare!
