Left home Monday morning in no rush except to get past Sydney without too many problems. I had already booked an e-pass on the M7 so that makes it so much easier and saves heaps of time all for about $7.00.
Plenty of phones to brother and s-i-l from Tassie who had been in Sydney for a few days and were also travelling north.
We met for breakfast at Forster on Tuesday morning, they were then going to visit friends at Port McQuarie and we were heading to South West Rocks for a couple of days.
This place is so nice we are staying until Friday. A cabin in a 4 star tourist park, facing the river, the pelicans, mum and dad ducks with 8 babies not more than a few days old, kookaburras in the trees, and just a warm up jog to a 3 km long front beach and 1.5 back beach to run.
I ran the beaches this morning, all soft sand, the tide was going out, really nice out to Trial Bay, site of the old gaol, and back. Then a very tough inland soft sand trail out the mouth of the Macleay River and back.
Good conditions weather wise, warm, wind off the sea, low humidity, and few people. This place would be packed in school holidays, and I now why.
Tweed Heads on Friday, apparently the seafood is very good at the golf club on Friday nights. We will soon find out.
Not much to do here, just the way we like it. Holidays are to relax, refresh and recover. I'm good at all three.
We catch up with brother and s-i-l at Tweed Heads again, and then later next week.
