It is a now a few days since we arrived home. On Wednesday we drove from Dungog to Byron Bay. A relatively long but straightforward drive (or so we thought) once we go onto the Pacific Highway near Taree. As some of you are aware, the Pacific Highway is the coastal arterial road between Brisbane and Sydney and it carries a huge volume of traffic. There are regular serious and fatal crashes and we discovered that our luck was out and the highway (4 lanes) was closed in both directions between Grafton and Ballina. We ended up taking some detours and spending up to 90 minutes in Grafton where we were stationary more than we were moving. We finally made it to Byron Bay by about 7.30pm. The next day we left reasonably early and drove home by lunchtime before the worst of the Easter traffic hit the roads.
Finally, I wanted to let you know that I have added a couple of pages to this blog. They are ‘Accommodation Reviews’ and ‘Eating Venues – Reviews’. This is where I will add some reviews/recommendations of places we have stayed and/or eaten when travelling. Of course, these are only personal opinions so you will need to make your own judgements if you consider trying any of them.
Thank you for coming along for the ride on our holiday. Now, I am heading back to http://organisedcastle.wordpress.com/ Hope to see your there.
