Sydney two…

Of course the Bridge had to be walked over, what an amazing structure it is too. Slightly concerned by the cracking and water stains in the non-metal support structures. Patch jobs will only last so long, I wonder if the public purse will stretch wide enough for repairs… Also noticed a few similar problems in the concrete underbelly of the Opera House. Not that I’m an expert of course 🙂

At the start of the pedestrian part of Sydney Harbour Bridge which you get to from The Rocks, behind the fence and inside the support pylon, is the NSW Railway Institute, complete with table and chairs out the front. Their website says they’re based in Petersham so I’ve no idea what this little spot is all about.

Took a leisurely stroll through Kirribilli and found a real gem – the gorgeous and marvelous Kirribilli Wharf Cafe. A little group local ladies were reading cook books aloud to each other and I had the best carrot cake of my life. Around the corner it’s worth popping down to Lady Gowrie Lookout where you can climb the rocks over to the iron fence that keeps us plebs away from the Prime Minister’s residence Kirribilli House and wave at the security camera. Once upon a time boats would have pulled up there I imagine.

At 6.30pm on Monday 2 November, as the sun dropped low in the sky, the massive Amsterdam simply began to move away from the dock, without any external assistance. I thought there’d be at least one tug, but no! What a feat of mechanics. Before it took off it blew its horn lots, to let its passengers know the time had come. Talk about *loud*. It echoed off the city’s skyscrapers as if 5 horns blew instead of one. Fantastic.
