Oz post 15 – 26th September 14.42

I’m sat in the uber busy ferry to manly, quite a different experience to the quiet small boat to karruba point. Off for another stroll along the coast, a perfect destination for the afternoon having yet more incredible weather :-)  

This morning was the much recommended Sydney harbour bridge climb. And yes, I can now wholeheartedly recommend it too!! I put my fear of heights far into the back if my mind as I embarked on the express climb. A 2 1/2 hour experiences that took me up the edge of the bridge on the lower arch to the mid point of the bridge where we climbed right to the top for the most spectacular views of Sydney harbour and far far beyond (even the haze of the blue mountains in the distance and the wide expanse of the pacific ocean opening out before us). Then across 8 lanes of traffic to the otherwise where were walked down between the two train tracks. It is a real feat of engineering and climbing up through the inside was really incredible. A definite must-do Sydney experience, just don’t think too much about the cost! 

Then a quick stroll around the rocks Market and grabbed some more sushi for lunch, and sampled some liquorice at one of the stalls including lychee (yum!!) and the sour Aussie (lemon and lime). Then belted it to the quay for the manly ferry. Not cutting it quite as fine as that train to Bilbao that time, but made it, and here I am. Next stop manly, last stop in my Sydney adventure :-( booo! But at least I’ve finally confirmed my surfing tour which departs tomorrow (at 7.30am, ouch!!) :-) yay!
