This is sad...
The large, double ended ferries that currently ply between Sydney'sCircular Quay and Manly are to be replaced. They are quite easily the best thing about Sydney, and to see them go will be sad.
True, some days the noise of the ferries booms across the harbour and can't be escaped, but the ride between Circular Quay and Manly feels special. No matter how much cleaner, quieter or more modern the replacements are, for people of a certain age (anyone currently over 5 years old) the trip will lose some of its magic.
In all, that's sad.
