Maritime buffs spread their maps as commuters, seeking a break from squinting at smartphones, strain secretly to look. Must-see features are marked up as we head into history mingled with designer living. Cremorne Point leads us on a loop of views, and past Maccallum’s harbourside pool where sunbathers gaze uninterrupted towards the Opera House and bridge. Lex and Ruby Graham’s secret garden renews vows to find green thumbs. No sealife sighted today in Mosman’s waters, but nearby Chowder Bay reveals its history of providing safe anchorage to US whalers. And chowder remains on the menus of nearby restaurants. Of which, lunchtime beckons but shall we opt for the grandeur of Balmoral or stay here in Chowder Bay with its playground and jetty? The artist among us decides. It’s off to picnic among the sculptures at Headland Park and onto last orders at Mosman Rowers.
