Heading to Sydney

Another nice drive with yet another wild rainstorm. I couldn't wait to give up the rental. ;-)

With the weather turning sour in Port Macquarie we decided to head south a day early. This turned out to be a good decision since the weather held until we got to the mountains just north of Sydney.

Then the rain game in buckets. It rained so hard other drivers were pulling over to wait out the storm. I wanted to get into Sydney before dark so I pressed on. It was very dicey for a while but eventually the rain lessened and we made it to our next stop.

Driving in the city was exciting due to the narrow streets and the tail end of rush hour. To top it off we ended up in the wrong line at the tool coming across the bridge into Sydney and we were 20 cents short of exact change! The toll both operator that manned the other booth told us to go on so we did. After 1000km of watching the speed limit and driving safely I didn't want to get a fine for missing the toll!

Since we arrived too late to return the rental car I had to park it at the resort. I can't wait to turn it in as soon as possible in the morning.
