Nowra via Kiama

The drive out of Sydney was pretty slow, but after that things got better. Nice stretch of coast to go along – we were heading for a town called Nowra. We didn’t really stop on the way except at Kiama to see the world famous blowhole that never does anything. That’s twice for MDF – and still no blowhole excitement.

Most Pommies I think like to make derogatory comments about Sydney drivers – but I’ll refrain for the time being – except to say that they seem to be fans of tailgating.

One bizarre thing we saw was that people had used padlocks as kind of memorials attached to a road bridge – Love Padlocks – apparently a world-wide phenomena! This was the first time I had seen any!

The bridge is called the Sea Cliff Bridge – and apparently the padlocks are a recent thing.

    There are loads of padlocks in Florence, but only in one place, maybe it’s new there too, but there were hundreds of them.

    I’d never seen it before either
