Wow what a day :). After a quick stop at the factory, we made it to the airport with time for lunch . We had a good flight and landed in Sydney onetime. A very short walk and we found the courtesy bus that took us to collect our hire car at East Coast Car rentals. I had booked a small 4cyl Nissan but we were up graded to a mid sized Suzuki Swift. :).

It was surprisingly easy to find our way out of the airport district and onto the road to Wollongong and then on to Berry.

We had planned on finding a supermarket and a quick look at the Woolworth’s app showed one at Engadine, just off the highway we were on, so we pulled it to do a quick shop of “necessities ” …..milk, bread, butter, eggs, some fresh meat and vege.

We had heard reports on the radio that there was very heavy traffic at Kiama. We thought we might have dodged it due to us being a bit later than peak hour, but alas it was not to be :(.
We were stuck in an 8km traffic jam that added an extra hour to our trip. We arrived at our cottage in Berry at around 7:00. http://berry.org.au/shipton/

After unpacking, a thrown together dinner of lamb chops and vege and we are in bed early, looking forward to a relaxing holiday.
