The path continues at length along parkland on the banks of the Swan River until the northern end of Tranby Reserve, where a diversion from the river takes me into the suburbs for a short time. The path deviates away from the river at the aptly named Swan View Terrace. I guess the path departs from the river so the rich people on the east of Swan View Terrace can have their personal view of the Swan River unobstructed by pesky walkers like me.
Despite having my views of the Swan River obstructed by the substantial houses on Swan View Terrance an interesting series of events did occur. As I walked along Swan View Terrace I encounter a local resident whipper snippering the edges of his lawn and the path. Generally when this happens the whipper snipperer stops as I get close, I guess as a courtesy to stop grass, possible stones or whipper snipper cord being projected at me. But this guy just kept going despite my obvious presence. Sure I got a few light projectiles at my legs, but nothing major, so I didn't care. However, the older lady of a couple walking in the other direction at the same time did care. She amusingly shook her arms in the air and yelled at him over the noise of the power tool and his earmuffs until he stopped. The whipper snipperer then got a good verbal spray, far exceeding the cut grass spray that we path walkers just endured. Good on her though, he really should have stopped for the few seconds necessary.
With a smile on my face bought about from neighbourly disputes I leave the suburbs and hit the path through the Baigup Wetlands.
