This will be the last entry for this trip away. I'm a day late posting it but have been just too busy to put words on the screen. Despite attempting to keep abreast of the Emails there are always a number that still need to be attended to.
The trip from Sydney to Moruya was quite boring and the enforced 'stops' in Nowra and Batemans Bay are understandable but still frustrating. The food shop we've frequented in the past was closed, being a Sunday we shouldn't be surprised. The Nowra stop always depresses me, there's nowhere to sit, there are no facilities, there just isn't anything for travellers passing through. Sadly, there's not a whole lot more in Batemans Bay or Sydney's Central Station either.
While on that topic, the recent opening of Sydney's cruise Ship Terminal at White Bay does nothing to improve the cruise passenger experience. With no access to any public transport the taxi companies will have a bonanza whenever a ship berths there. With an average of 2000 passengers arriving and a like number departing that could be up to 2000 taxis needed in something like 6 hours.
It is good to be home and lots to do with a specialist appointment in Canberra on Thursday to fit in as well.
For those who have followed us for the past 5 weeks, thanks for visiting and I'll let you know when next we decide to leave our comfortable home and subject ourselves to the rigours of travel.
Total distance travelled is roughly 22,000 Km and that doesn't include the 100 Km we walked around the cities, aboard the ship and in airport terminals 8-)
Cheers ... Tony
