On Friday 11 November 2011 we travelled from Sydney to Port Macquarie. The first part of the trip was with two bikes (Branimir and Danijela on one, and Ben and Rebecca on the other).

This was a quick stop on the old Pacific Highway between Hornsby and Gosford.

They live right on the water at Port Stephens, but the fog was so heavy that morning, that we were not able to see the sea at first. After a while it started to clear.

I ended up getting an urgent e-mail regarding work, which needed immediate attention. While dealing with my e-mail, the others had a little rest.

We indulged ourselves by buying ice creams, before parting ways. Malcolm and Marcia went via Wisemans Ferry back to Hamlyn Terrace, while the rest of us returned to Sydney via the Old Northern Road.
