Sydney Monorail is closing at the end of this month and will be pulled down and lost forever. I have always loved riding the Monorail and when my oldest grandson was very young I would take him for Monorail rides. We would buy a day ticket and go round and round in a circle till we'd had enough.
Grandson T is now 21 and felt it was his duty to take me for a farewell ride with his brother A soon to be 16. Yes, that's me in the middle ready for my big day out. Obviously I forgot to take my box to stand on when out with my tall grandsons. I am just over 5ft tall and they are 6ft tall. Don't know how it happened but I think my short genes have gone forever.
Most of the photos have been taken through a not very clean window but these are some of the views. On the left is an old ferry now turned restaurant.
The Maritime Museum.
The boys again. The rail for the monorail is behind and above them.
Daughter S and mother of the boys was there too and admiring the view as we go around.....and around again as the rail is one huge circle with stations at various tourist stops.
Looking out the back window there is a great view of the car park, below that there is a tram or light rail as it's called. Also a fun ride.
The rail goes very close to some buildings and it's possible to look in windows or on top of some buildings. The top of this building looks like it has a tin shack on top made out of bits of rubbish.
And last is the view from the train window as I went home, a bit different from all the city views.
Goodbye Monorail I'll miss you.

Not very tall, not very slim and more bad hair days than good. Don't like cooking or gardening so recipes and gardening hints will never appear on my blog.
To sum me up, think minimalist, I am the opposite.
