Mar 1, 2020 - at Urunga

SUN Mar 1 - Day 7 Jan is having major problems with itchy sandfly bites which are driving her crazy. No wonder we can’t see them or even feel them till after they bite - check the photo of mosquito and sandfly. The thought of putting on slacks for church just makes her want to scratch more - so - we decided to stay home and check in with NBC at 10:30 (9:30 Qld) for their morning service. It was a 2 hour service, and included Junior Soldiers being enrolled and others being awarded achievement awards. Tim Gittins preached on “Empathy” - very...

Thu Feb 27 - Day 4 Easy, lazy, quiet, slow, (pick a word) start to the day. 11:30 and we still haven’t done any more than breakfast and m/tea. Isn’t that what holidays are for? Went on the board walk out to the surf beach and back. The side board walk has been closed due to partial collapse. NO RABBITS anymore. Decided to stay till Monday so we have the option of church on Sunday. Interest Fact 5 - the effect of a sandfly bite is not in proportion to its size.

Feb 26, 2020 - Ballina to Urunga

Wed Feb 26 - Day 3 Left Ballina at 10 heading for Grafton. Hoping to have a caravan repair shop look at damage we have to the bottom edge of the entry door. No idea when it happened but the impact of “something” has caused a severe dent in the bottom edge and now the door won’t separate allowing us to just use the screen door. Ah the trials of caravanning. The friendly repair guy at South Grafton said we would be better off to repair it via an insurance claim. He stayed at his desk, looked at my photos, and that was it. No suggestions about...

Day 50 Monday 14th April at Urunga Today has dawned cloudy , overcast, with misty rain, and at one stage late in the morning there was a good rainfall for about a half hour. The end result was a day of reading and sewing. There was a substantial patch of blue sky revealed but within an hour the clouds had retained their dominance of the sky. This will probably be the LAST BLOG POSTING. Tomorrow we expect to take down the annex (between showers) Wednesday we leave Urunga and the current thinking is that with the constant showery weather we...

Apr 11, 2014 - Forster to Urunga

Day 47 Friday 11th April Forster to Urunga We spoke too soon - the rain started during the night and it was still raining in the morning. But lucky for us, it paused raining every so often which allowed me to get all the pack up and car-van connection done. It rained most of the way up to Port Macquarie where we had morning tea. Then it was dry through to Nambucca Heads where we had lunch. Such a change to sit in the sunshine with no wind having our lunch. On the way into Nambucca we saw an ad for a craft show so after lunch we went off to...

Touring Tasmania

Dec 8, 2010 - Bellingen

A beautiful, small town on the Bellinger river, called BellingeN because of some person hundreds of years ago's spelling msitake. Got picked up from the greyhound stop by a rather creepy driver who looked extremely like a serial killer/paedophile/both, but ended up being pretty harmless during our stay. The hostel itself was stunning, an old wooden house with massive terraces overlooking the river and beyond, right behind the cute main (only) street in Bellingen. In the dusk from the terrace you could see masses of swarms of bats flying...
