Breakfast arrived on time and was much tastier than yesterday’s breakfast!! We met Anne & Glen in the lobby before heading off towards Sydney via the Coastal Route. The drive was almost about double that of the highway once you added in our various stops for looksies and lunch. Lunch was a fish and chip shop on the beach where we dined with a one eyed cat and an adorable dog on the other side of the fence. The fish & chips weren’t’ bad either.
Due to the fact that we were travelling BACK to Sydney after a long weekend, the traffic was horrendous and crawled along at points. By the time we made it to Anne’s daughter’s house (Danielle), it was dark. We played with Danielle’s new baby girl until dinner was ready. Mmmmm homemade food!!! Her chicken lasagna was delicious and although there was apparently a hot pepper in there somewhere, Chrissy’s love affair with Chiptole Peppers made it unnoticeable for either Tom or Chrissy. The sticky date pudding for dessert was also delicious.
But alas, the day had been long and it was time to get going to our hotel. We said goodbye and made arrangements to get in touch later tomorrow, we also got detailed instructions on how to get to the hotel as our GPS doesn’t work here unfortunately.
We made it relatively unharmed and while it seems an interesting area to be (and right next to the train tracks), it’s clean, quiet, and our room is quite nice. Chrissy was out cold before the door shut, having r dose of cold medicine leaving Tom to relax after a long day of driving.
