Take a detour and drive along the beach, have icecreams and a history lesson!

Last Friday we were driving home from a Strathmore Home-Ed sports afternoon before 4pm to find as we approached the Bolte Bridge that the traffic in the lane leading to the Burnley Tunnel had completely stopped and the sign read ‘Collision in Burnley Tunnel Expect Delays’. So should we sit in stand still traffic when the afternoon peak was about to begin or get off at Todd Road?  We decided to get off Citylink and go through Beacon Cove, drive up close to the Spirit of Tasmania and the P & O Liner which were in port, continue through St. Kilda and along Beach Road and in a very short time we were way past the inner city suburbs. We turned off Beach Road at Half Moon Bay to find a beach kiosk only to discover we had ended up at the site of the scuttled HMVS/HMAS Cerberus.
