Left Tuncurry Thursday morning and headed up to Coffs Harbour stopping at gorgeous Scotts Head for a picnic lunch. Really great to get to Cherelle and Daron’s. Parked swifty in the drive and settled in for a roast chicken dinner with our queen of chardy, Cherelle. Lots of laughs and just great to be together.
Day 1 in Coffs was Friday and Cherelle managed an early mark so the three of us could drive into the hinterland in Coffs Harbour for a lunch in a quaint little café which was an old converted tram. A great lunch which was accompanied with a nice glass of wine of course. We ended a great day with a local club dinner and a stint on the dance floor at one of the local pubs. Band was great and the 3 of us dominated the dance floor. The band thanked us at the end of their gig, for dancing to their songs as it got everyone else up. We were very enthusiastic dancers particularly when they sang PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC WHITE BOY. Ahhhh frightening recalling that the next morning.
Day 2 was nurse the hangover and pack the champers into the esky with a chook and salad and hit the beach at Mullaway. We swam in the surf which was awesome. Water is so clear up here and freaky warm for this time of year.
Day 3 in Coffs was brilliant. We drove out to Dorrigo and checked our Dangar falls before power walking the 6 k track through the rainforest
Day 4 in Coffs was all about sorting Swifty out. Daron helped me out with a PVC pipe to pop on the roof racks to store our fishing rods then I had a local sheet metal fabrication company knock up a tool box and fix it to the draw bar on swifty. He did have to move the gas bottle forward a little to fit his tool box. All set now for the trip. Despite the commitment to sorting swifty out today we still snuck in some fun. Lunch at the yacht club was beautiful with its sunny balcony overlooking the ocean and later in the evening Sherrie, Cherelle and I participated in aqua aerobics whilst Ellen did lap swimming. Thinking of heading out tomorrow. Hard to leave here it’s been so lovely.
