Kevin and I were up early, and I mean EARLY, as in 3AM to go on our Dawn Harbour Bridge Climb. Not only was it early but it was cold and rainy. Still we got dressed and caught a cab to the Bridge Climb office. I think we were still half asleep – what do you think?
We arrived a bit too early and had to wait until they opened.
Once we got all geared up we headed out with our guide Matt. We were doing the Discovery climb which involved seeing more of the bridge than just the arch. We set off in the dark.
And arrived at the top just before the “sunrise”.
As you can see it was an awesome sunrise :-). Suprisingly the weather didn’t “dampen” things too much for us and we absolutely loved the whole climb experience. By the time we headed back down it was a lot lighter. This was what we really liked about the dawn climb – we saw the city and bridge in both the night and day.
Having recently watched Glee we were pleased to see they had a nice day for their climb :-).
While it’s not a cheap thing to do (we had been given vouchers for Christmas from my Mum & Dad) it really was an awesome experience – one I’d encourage everyone to do if given the chance.
After the climb we were tired, damp and hungry so headed to Starbucks for some breakfast.
We then went back to our room where I had another bath and Kevin had a little nap. We checked out around 10.30am and headed home. It was brief but very enjoyable little getaway.
