North Head is not far, only another mile from Devonport, where we’ve gone for half a dozen shop-n-stroll Saturday mornings, but we’d never been before.

It’s a beautiful spot. We hiked all over… about an hour… including a tour of the underground tunnels and bunkers that defined this property from the 1880s to the 1960s:

That particular gun was never fired in anger. In fact, the last time it did fire was a salute in 1953 when young Queen Elizabeth came by.
