Bridge Walk

| | Comments (2)

So to celebrate the Old Coathanger turning 75, a bunch of us walked across it today.

It was way cool!

The trains were *ok* for us. It was crowded at Town Hall, but nothing really crazy. The craziness started about 10 minutes later though, with a fatality at North Sydney stuffing everyting up and forcing us to get off at Milsons Point. Which wasn't so bad for us, except the slow down in trains meant the others got separated and delayed.

But we all met up in the end. Six grown-ups and six kids. So each kid was assigned a grown-up to look after and make sure they didn't get lost :)

It all flowed quite nicely and didn't feel overcrowded. The sea of yellow-green hats was *very* cool. Got some pics of flying boats and sea planes, but we never saw the C130s, and the F111s only flew by once very quickly, so didn't even get a pic of those. Took 339 pics all up. Ooops. :)

Harbour Bridge Walk

Edit: apparently they were FA-18s, not F111s. Also, we missed the 747 which also made a low pass, but after we left :(

That's a cool pic of the sea of people!

My family went at night and we stopped so much to take photos that it ended up pretty quiet, with not that many people. Some of my photos are on my flickr site. the photos were really rushed though cause they were trying to move us on so that they could reopen the roads. =(
