Woke up at 630 and hit the road. We saw our first rain today. A park ranger had said if you hit bad weather, just keep driving north, so we are taking his advice today and heading towards a place called BoyRun Bye-- we were originally calling it byron bay until we heard the correct pronunciation from the locals :-). Apparently there is some sun and good surf there. By the way, along the highways here, the spend limits are highly enforced. They have speeed cameras periodically along the roads, with signs that are very threatening. They also have huge billboads that read, "we see you and we are watching you if you speed" with a picture of a cop with with mirrored sun glasses. Fortunately our van barely goes fast enough to speed. Today we made it to Ballina and stayed at a place called Ballina Lakeside Holiday Park (holiday means vacation in Aussie lingo).
