This was a very long day. We left Sydney at 6 am and got to the resort at 8 pm. At least we thought it was 8 pm. Turns out that Sydney was on daylight savings time. They started it early this year because of the Olympics. In Queensland, they do not have daylight savings time, so we actually arrived at 7 pm. It still felt like a 14 hour drive.

Here are some pictures of the road.

The hospital in Tamworth is huge, but it's behind so many trees it's hard to get a picture of. Penticton's hosptial was planning to become a sister hospital with Tamworth, but then regionalization set it and the plans have been put on hold.
