It is interesting to observe the varied style of housing. At low tide it is easy to take a short cut alongside the harbour.

Despite the grey clouds and the rain forecast, we set off to explore the streets and reserves of Westmere, starting from the fabulous community-minded Garnet Station Cafe in Garnet Road.
