Daley's Visit 2018

It was the most amazing day for a visit to Daley's.  I managed to drag my butt out of bed at 5:15 and was on the road by 5:45 to start the journey.  Google maps told me it would be 2hrs and 15 min via lions road.  "Perfect" I thought.  Macca's stop for coffee, toilet break when I'm almost there because of said coffee and I would still arrive at 9 am (You read that correctly and I can add up -Stupid daylight savings time).  Plenty of time for me to stop in Kyogle and grab something to eat and…
