weatherboard love part 2

a short walk from watson's bay is camp cove...narrow little streets full of charming heritage fisherman's cottages. a haven nestled between the massive sandstone cliffs at the entrance to sydney harbour, secluded harbour beach and naval base.

this cute cottage is an all time favourite of mine

love the charcoal weatherboard, white woodwork and nautical touches

giant hibiscus trees

the last of the frangipanis

love the weathered naval base sign

hope you enjoyed the walk!



  1. Such beautiful photos. Love the view of Sydney with the ferry in the distance. Love the huge
    Hibiscus tree and flowers. Love the cottages.

  2. Love it all. Great shots of a great location.
    Best Carolyn

  3. I love the little cottage with the nautical touches too. It's a little squeezed in there amongst the "big guys", but so sweet. Great to see the skyline from the beach..., you don't get that everywhere (not at all)!!

  4. These are all great shots. I love weatherboard houses with shutters and beautiful gardens. Leahxx

  5. So beautiful! I love those cottages. I can only imagine living in a little place like that. I would love to see the insides, too. We went to Watson's Bay for lunch one day (can't remember the restaraunt - maybe Doyles?) when we visited my sister there in '03. It was an overcast day when we were there but still lovely- it was nice to see it on a sunny day. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love it all!!! Wonderful photo tour for those of us on the other side of the globe. Hope you're having a great week.

  7. Love the first house, I am considering painting my house in similar colours

  8. Beautiful photos. Looks like it was just a perfect day to be there. Love those houses!

  9. Thanks for taking me to such a wonderful place...
    lovely house, i ♥ it.

  10. So many absolutely adorable homes and images there. I am loving the blue home and the one with the cream with the blue trim.....definitely my faves. I came across some fantastic old wooden paddles this past weekend which would look divine in any of those homes xo

  11. What adorable houses. That first Hibiscus image is stunning too - the colour is divine.

    What a beautiful suburb to live in and the view is priceless.


  12. beautiful beautiful beautiful
    my goodness this takes me back. last time I was at camp cove i was 15 and trying to impress a boy .. so jumped off that cliff that jump off there into the harbour.. sadly we had to climb back up the rock face.. these memories are so vivid.. and looking at those beach shots it amazing how strong my memory is of that day...

    Those beach shots are FABULOUS.. just love the clouds!!! Hope you are having a great week.. ciao xxx Julie

    oh.. love that home with the aqua accents!!

  13. Wonderful post, would love to someday stroll those streets!

  14. What a beautiful little town Cheryl! I would love to stroll down the streets there and look at all those beautiful cottages and gardens. Love the view of the city too. What a paradise!

  15. Hi,
    Just popping over from Sarah's Good Life Wednesday. It is lovely to meet you.

    ps. such beautiful flowers.

  16. Camp Cove is such heaven - i used to go there and study in the afternoons when I was a student. Gorgeous pics!

  17. It looks like you live in paradise. What a lucky lady you are.

  18. Wow. Very pretty. Reminds me of the very few old-Florida-type small towns that are still around.

  19. Making me homesick - Camp Cove was far more sophisticated than going to Neilsen's Park when I was growing up, though my mother preferred Parsley Bay. I value them more with hindsight now I live in the Bay Area - California water is COLD!
