The drive North - first stop

I hired a small car, a Nissan Micra. I didn't realise how small it was until I was boxed in by enormous trucks charging along the Illawarra Highway! Anyway I refused to be intimidated or to be pushed over the speed limit, but I found that four hours was really my maximum for each day.

I spent the first night on a house-boat at Bulahdelah. For some strange reason I remembered this as a very picturesque little town. How memories do deceive! Anyway I thought a night on a houseboat would retrieve the situation. I was enjoying myself until the cockroaches came out! Enormous! I slept out on the back deck, until the rain chased me in.

Again there was an advantage, I caught the early morning mist on the river.

Someone else who was also looking for breakfast!
