The high point is in the centre of the bridge and it was raining in bucket loads, 9inches in 24 hours. I woke up today (Thursday) to brilliant sunshine, Sydney is back to normal it seems.I think it must be coming down the road and the bridge is the low point in the road where it finally goes over the side. Otherwise, I can't see how that much water gets that high.
Cargo ships don't dock in Sydney, they go to Botany Bay for oil and containers or Wollongong and Newcastle for steel.And those cargo Ships have a heck of a time navigating that particular section of your harbor . I guess there is a port master along with a few tugs and those powerful engines onboard the cargo ship working in unison to dock the cargo carrier just in front of that there Bridge awesome thing to see .. yeah those floating fortresses have to swing around and just barely touch that Bridge in order to finalize docking procedures ..
I am in Logistics I know ..
About 3 years ago I boarded a cruise ship at that location, "Rhapsody of the Seas", a US ship and went on a 14 day cruise around New Zealand. That was my first experience of having to "tip" as part of the price, here the waiters have to be paid at least a minimum wage so it is not a normal part of dining. I did love the cruise though, especially when we were in port and I stopped feeling woosey.Your right Aussie ... those are cruise ships then just to the left of that picture is where those cruise ships would dock .. thank you for that clarification .. My Bad ..
