Climbing a Meccano Bridge

Fear of heights pushed aside this morning as some stupid idiot (me again) thought it would be cool to climb the Story Bridge "everyone climbs the Sydney Harbour Bridge..." we donned prison like suits and trekked up the bridge. The worst part was the walkway underneath as soon as we were up at car level nerves were overtaken by adrenaline. We climbed over 1,000 steps & rose 80m above sea level and you know what I loved it!!!! It really did look like it was made of Meccano, not sure how I felt about the guys tightening the screws while we were up there.



Fish & chips by the Brisbane River was well I've had better F&C but it was nice sitting by the river. We explored South Bank and even stuck our feet on the 'beach'. Such a nice green space, plenty of playgrounds, grass areas & massive trees but the bit that got me was the number of lizards!!!



Over a pedestrian bridge & into the City Botanical gardens we four went, it was nice & cool and you guessed it more lizards.
