Monday 24th October 2016

SHE SAID:

We farewelled Cairns in the best way possible.... breakfast on the beach! Well, at the beach shack that we found yesterday.

An unexciting trip back to Canberra; the traffic was crazy mad when we left Sydney Airport, but other than that everything went smoothly. Geoff even got a meat pie for dinner when we stopped at the Heatherbrae's Pie Shop in Sutton.

HE SAID:

No surprise, but it was much cooler at Sydney when we left the terminal. Then we tackled the afternoon traffic. Hmmm. I don't know why road designers insist on putting stupidly undersized access points on to major roads. Accessing the M5 from Sydney Airport had 2 lanes turning onto the motorway under the control of traffic lights that allowed only a few vehicles time enough to turn, while being hindered by a lane of severely backed-up traffic from the opposite direction trying to merge into the same space on the M5 access lane, which then dwindled to one lane. So 3 very busy lanes merged into one lane, very badly. Did nobody think that this may be a bloody obvious choke point?
