The winds didn’t abate as much as forecast but nonetheless we both had a decent nights sleep as only the occasional strong gust made it’s presence known during the night. They are now forecasting that they will reduce over the next couple of days but at least it’s still forecast to remain dry and sunny.
This morning we set off for Sydney, heading south for the final time on the Pacific Highway ! We had a few electronic things to buy to ship back to the UK with us and an internet search had led us to a small shop in the north west of Sydney so that was our first destination. Thankfully Apple Maps did the navigating again and we got there without any problems. They had everything we wanted in stock so, mission accomplished we headed back to north east Sydney and Narrabeen.
We stopped off to see Mal (he owns Narrabeen TyrePower) at his garage as we weren’t sure if he’d be off taking advantage of the snow this weekend. We stopped off at a petrol station to buy our “MyMulti 3” passes that will give us a week’s use of public transport in and around Sydney and then set up camp.
We’ve booked in for 3 nights, as planned. That gives us 2 full days to “do” Sydney before we head to Lane Cove on Saturday morning for our last 2 nights. Tomorrow we plan to take the bus to Manly then the ferry from there into Sydney centre to do the tourist thing.
