According to the Rockdale Council website, Dolls Point was considered uninhabitable by early Europeans. The origins of the name are unclear but legend has it that it was named for an escaped convict who took shelter in the grim landscape to hide from the authorities.
Dolls Point is the sandy part. The green land across the water is Towra Point.

Ibises moved into urban areas looking for food during the prolonged drought. A whole heap set up residence in the nearby park (shown yesterday). No drought any more, but the birds seem to like their digs and intend to stay. Now they're out 'n' about checking out the 'hood!

The sun was shining this morning over Arncliffe Park as I was on my way to work; so I had to stop and capture the oh so green green-ness, a result of all the rain we've had lately.
The sun is noticeably lower in the sky and the season is changing, but it's still warm, humid and summery. Beautiful!
