Another cocktail..... ? Absabloominlutely.....!!

I took so many photos in Sydney but I'm only going to post a couple of the 'arty' ones because it's not my city and Julie (sydney-eye), Jim (SydneyCity and Suburbs), Ann (SydneyMeanderings) and other Sydneysiders do the best job of that already! This one was taken when we had  cocktails in the Blu Bar on the 36th floor of The Shangri La (Blu Bar). It's more than a touch unnerving sitting on a bar stool, leaning on a glass table being able to see the traffic flow so very far down below you. The fabulous views of Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House certainly make up for the strong feelings of vertigo, and....oh yes, a few cocktails definitely soothe the nerves too.....!!

  5. What an awesome view! And the perfect capture! It surely beats my view right now of pouring rain, wind and a WAY too chilly wind at that! So, I'll enjoy your summer and a drink as well! Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Well, Grace, I chastised you ever so gently about your fear of flying, but heights? I think I would like to move over to the next table, further away from the edge, if you don't mind . . .

  8. Oh my gosh... until you mentioned the glass table and the view straight down to the street... I saw it! Wow... don't think I could do that!

  9. I don't think I'd care for the view for very long, but I sure would like to be able to see it...just once!!~

  21. Julie and I will be in Sydney next year, so I will have to remember this spot for a drink and some photos.

  22. What a fun and funky shot. You're much braver than I am. I don't like heights. Thus, I'd need more than a couple of drinks to sit there and look down. Nah, even the liquor wouldn't help. :-)

  23. Fantastic view and fantastic shot Grace. Looks like you were really living it up in Sydney.

  27. You're a braver soul than I am Grace - It would make me dizzy- cocktail or no cocktail!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for pointing to the traffic below, otherwise I would have gladly enjoyed the drink without even noticing ...

    I'm glad I wasn't there with you though. I'm not sure I would have survived such an experience, the fear of heights would have gotten the better of me.

    Beautiful shot.
