Ever since a visionary entrepreneur, by the name of Paul Cave, conceived the idea that to climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge would be really a cool thing to do, I have wanted to do it. Climbing the bridge legally was launched in 1999, while we lived in the Sydney area. Somehow, I never did it then.
My son Mark did climb the Bridge illegally in his days as a university student in the early nineteen eighties. He told me he climbed to the top through the inside of the arch. Well, that certainly is not for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the 'legal' climb yesterday in company of my good friend Fred. We had a great and exhilarating time on a picture perfect day. The weather was sunny with just a light breeze which made the event all the more spectacular. We did the mid afternoon walk, which lasted for almost three hours that included a glorious sunset over Sydney harbour. It could not have been better!
