|Ship wreck, McMahon's Point, Sydney|
Sawmillers Reserve is along the foreshore at McMahons Point. McMahons Point is a beautiful spot on the north side on the harbour and on the west side of the harbour bridge. This land held a sawmill from the 1890's, finally closing by the 1980's. It was a thriving business especially before the 1920's and had it's own powerhouse, 2 saw mills, an engineers shop, joinery, blacksmiths shop and it's own wharf and crane. When the site was vacated the local council made it a public reserve. Some of the sawmill remains and there is even a boat wreck.
There is a sculpture exhibition on until March 16 at Sawmillers Reserve, showing more than 70 works.
This watercolour sketch was done on the weekend. It was a beautiful spot on a beautiful warm and sunny day. There were quite a few sailboats bobbing around in the bay and there were people swimming off one boat. Yikes, don't they know there's sharks in there!!
