Coming home from our holidays last month was not the peaceful ending we had anticipated. The low pressure system hovering off the northern New South Wales coast had other intentions for us and the thousands of locals and tourist in the area.
Lucky for us the Mister is a great driver who enjoys a challenge and laughs in the face of torrential wind, rain coupled with fallen trees and swollen river. It took us 12 hours of sometimes nail biting action to get back to Sydney and I almost kissed the ground when I got out of the car except it was still raining and my nonchalant Mister looked at me with a pained expression which said “as if there was ever a problem”.
All the photos were taken on the road between Grafton and Armidale.
As for our holiday. There was no lounging around the pool working on the pathetic tan I had from one, yes one decent day, at the beach all summer. Instead we watched dvds, read our books, ate and ate and ate. But we loved the peace and that the rain slowed us down even more as there was nothing to do but be zen.
PS: Apologies for the late entry but we hit the ground running. Zen became zoom on Monday morning. Aaah the memories
