Feb 16, 2017 - Berry

Janette rang just after breakfast to say she was on her way and should arrive about 1pm. So, after I did a load of washing, I went for a walk to the shops. There are lots of homeware ‘girly’ type shops with lots of different nick knacks. I managed to resist temptation but enjoyed pottering through the shops. I had just decided to organise an early lunch when Janette arrived with her dogs - Ollie, Rosie and Tess at about 12.30pm. We had managed to organise for her van to be parked next to ours, so of course there was lots of talking and...

Feb 15, 2017 - Milton to Berry

Pretty well just a day on the road today. We had arranged to meet Janette (one of the girls we had met up north early in our travels and with whom we had shared some dog sitting duties with) at a free camp at Jamberoo (east of Kiama). Unfortunately, the free camp turned out to be very small, very tight and very full with some very entrenched looking campers. So, we turned around and retraced our steps to the showgrounds at Berry which was our second option for possible meeting place. The section of highway between Kiama and Berry is quite...

May 10, 2013 - On the air again!

By now you must be thinking we've fallen off the edge of the world, but never fear, we're still here. We've been plagued with computer/Internet problems - my modem had been deactivated by Telstra because I hadn't used it for a while; my E-Pad (which holds my life)shut down and had to be replaced and that took time, but hopefully everything is ok now. We're now at Bright in North East Victoria after spending time in Wagga with Mum but I'll start where I left off weeks ago. April 7 Through Kempsey to Crescent Head to find Point Plomer for a...

Nov 24, 2012 - Berry, Kiama, Shoalhaven, Jervis Bay

Some of our best camping spots have been in Agricultural Showgrounds - more space, less rules, greater freedom for dogs, friendly neighbours and cheaper! Not very popular with caravan parks tho'! In Berry, we discovered a whole new world watching the locals prepare for a (very up-market)cow sale. Animals were scrubbed, shaved, primped, back-combed and bedded down in thick hay with attendants frantically running around to collect you-know-what before it soiled the bedding. They looked after them better than I had myself in the previous few...

Dec 4, 2006 - Jervis Bay Camping

We spent the weekend doing what we have come to do best- camping. A crowd of us went down to Jervis Bay, about a 3 hour drive south of Sydney organised by Drenka. It was a pretty swish camping outfit. I thought we did luxury camping back home but this gave us something to aspire to. We were all allocated a meal to prepare and cook for the weekend. We got Sunday breakfast which seemed straightforward enough. We loaded the camping boxes into the van as the camp crew have collected all the necessary equipment over the years and it is stored...

Nov 21, 2006 - Sydney

I've made it to Sydney. The weather down here was much like Townsville with temperatures in the mid 30s. The reports are that Christchurch was 4 degrees overnight so the winter weight clothing for "at sea" will have to come out early. Went for a drive thru the Sydney traffic and under harbour and city tunnels. All very boring compared with the sights of the harbour bridge, and it costs money to drive in a tunnel with no view. I depart for Christchurch tomorrow 22 Nov. Cheers Steve

Oct 19, 2006 - Surf Camp!

Monday, the 16th I was booked to go to Ripcurl Surf Camp for 4 days. We caught the bus at 8am and drove 2 hours south of Sydney to a place called Gerroa, near Gerringong, and we surfed at Seven Mile Beach. A few of us from my orientation decided to sign up together so at least I knew a few other people going. The camp we stayed at was really cool. Just a short walk to the beach, and we stayed in little cabins. Each day for 4 days, we had a 2 hour lesson in the morning AND a 2 hour lesson in the afternoon. You definitely discover muscles...

Aug 2, 2006 - Heading South

We need to get back to Melbourne (daughters first babe - baby shower - shopping - necessary!). Decided to take route 1 - down the coast. Stop offs at reasonable intervals (for us) at Coffs, Karuah (Newcastle/Port Stephens), Shellharbour (Wollongong), Bega, Bairnsdale - Melb. Took a few days at each stop - longer at places we hadn't stayed before. At Coffs we stay on the north side - actually at Park Beach CP. High class resort park we have been to before. For the lazy, the bowls club is just down the road and serves a good feed at...

Apr 23, 2006 - Camels in the morning, Sydney in the afternoon

We had a 6:00 am wake up today. After yesterday it seems slightly abusive but being that it was for a ride on camels we got no objections. Our bus picked us up at 7:30 and we headed out to the camel ranch. We had a very short safety briefing and climbed on top of our steeds with two riders per camel. Demi rode with Torger, Molly rode with another woman and Niko rode with me. Don't worry for a minute that the camels were being over burdened. They are amazingly strong and durable animals. Back in their day as a primary tool for hauling, bull...

Jan 12, 2006 - Kiama (da)

Kiama 120106 Vi har haft et par meget oplevelsesrige dage i Sydney... Mormor og morfar kom d. 9. om aftenen og flyttede ind til os på Billabong Gardens. Vi havde et familie-værelse med eget bad, fjernsyn, kaffemaskine og håndklæder - ren luksus. Hostellet var stort og rummeligt bygget sammen af nogle huse med en have/pool og terasse i midten. Det var hyggeligt, rart og lå i Newtown, en let arty bydel med masser af caféer, boghandlere og små, snedige butikker langs hovedgaden, King Street. Tirsdag morgen valgte vi at gå ind til byen, det...

Dec 23, 2005 - Bateman's Bay

At Mallacoota we saw people who had decorated their campers with Christmas decorations. We saw a few small Christmas trees too! Today in Bateman's Bay I saw a sandman - instead of a snowman! Pretty cute! We have a great site, among some cabins in a caravan campground and it is right on the water. We went for a little swim - oh, the water was pretty cold on the initial dunk, but it was refreshing. Ken keeps tripping over the tent lines! While I have my wine chilling in a bucket of ocean water. Ken and I have decided that we need to return to...
