Eeek! A bus at the bus stop! It wasn't mine, though. I get the 35 which is about two minutes behind.

Anyway, hope this satisfies those of you who haven't been able to get to sleep at night worrying about the buses  ;)  ;D

Do the drivers keep the doors shut to prevent shopping trolleys boarding? And what are the lifting hooks on the roof for? :)

I was just wondering how many drunk people end up in Berkeley because a ticket from Wollongong to Warrawong might be a tad too difficult to enunciate  :D

 ;D I think the lifting hooks you refer to are actually the top of the MacDonalds sign across the road  :thumbsup:

One of my favourite bus stops right outside one of my favourite pubs! locals will recognise the stop sign from the now defunct "Hants & Dorset" bus company, services now run by the Wilts & Dorset company.

Four hours south from bus stop and that is indeed the Tasman Sea in background.

Big red roof belongs to pub that charges Sydney prices for a beer!

Back to the bus stop now. Watch this space

When I was a kid, my family drove down to Narooma from Cooma for summer holidays. Wouldn't know anything about bar prices from that time though.

Still a very nice place Narooma despite there being stacks more people there than there used to be.

I trust you've verified the motel lives up to its claim of local elevation superiority?
