    The very narrow bridge crossing the Manning River at Taree. This is part of the Pacific Highway. Huge B-Double trucks have to use this bridge!!! :o

    Thanks, BigBilly. :D The pics, so far, take us to less than halfway home. Shall be adding a few more in days to come. :lol3:

    Unfortunately, the sun was in the wrong aspect during this last part of the trip home from Taree plus the windscreen was getting covered in squished insects. :sick2: That did reduce the scenes I was able to capture. Nonetheless, I do have a few more, though. :whistle:

    Returning home. This would be just north of Taree.

    Have never heard of John's River. It is north of Taree & a bit south of The Brothers.

    The weather was very overcast & dull for this part of the trip up the Pacific Highway. It doesn't help that the Australian native trees, particularly the eucalypts, are naturally dark green which makes everything look really dark.

    These are speed averaging, point-to-point, safety cameras which are placed over the highway at regular intervals. They average the time it takes for a long distance truck to travel between two of these cameras to tell whether a truck driver has been speeding or is not getting their proper rest breaks. These two arms are only covering one lane each side. What about the trucks that are on the overtaking lane?? :lol3:

    More golden wattle. No wonder I have had severe hayfever.

    Another Pacific Highway upgrade underway, somewhere. This will be most welcome when it is finished.

    Still on the divided highway. The sun appears to have broken through the cloud.

    Thanks, Dawn. :D The speed limit was only 80kph, at that stretch of the highway, so it was a bit easier to take. Think I may have been attracted by the orange barrier. :lol3:

    The sun is shining very bleakly through the clouds & is making the bitumen look wet, which it isn't.

    We have been following this car for quite some time. They must not be dawdling otherwise Bruce would have passed them by now. We will soon be in Kempsey, for lunch at Maccas, so this will soon be the end of seeing this car ahead of us.

    We have a "new friend" as we have been behind this car since we left Kempsey over half an hour ago. :lol3:
