After continental breakfast at the Pinnacle Guesthouse we headed off to complete 2 walks , Manly to the Spit bridge followed by Spit to the Harbour bridge.We started with our coats on the weather being still cold from yesterdays low , but the rain was holding off and we were soon stripping off before we had got to the end of Manly Cove. We must have missed a turn ( even tough the sign said spit ) so ended up with a longish walk through suburbia to Clontarf . After walking along the beach here I was soon recognizing Middle Harbour and the Yacht Clubs from my visit here in my early adolescence then finally the spit bridge came into view. Walking through the bush near here it was hard to believe we were still in the suburbs. We then negotiated the steep streets of Middle Harbour . The rest of the walk was a combination of bush tracks and suburban streets. All steps being rather steep ! Finally we arrived at Kiribilli on the North side of the bridge and at lunch at one of the Cafes . We walked across the bridge and talked about where we would stay our last night . First stop was the Shangri La near Circular Quay . The going rate was 275 for a standard room 290 for an Opera House view and 390 for a grand harbour view room . Anyway after negotiation we
ended up with a Grand Harbour View room and complimentary bubbly for 260 ! – Talk about walking in style !!
nice work with the negotiating! xx
