Heading north on the east coast
Since we collected this caravan, now affectionately known as NFAA which stands for No Fixed Abode Again, we have stayed at Corindi, Peter and Di's at The Gap, Brisbane, Mudjimba, Sharon Nature Reserve which was our first freebie, Kin Kora, Gladstone and have been here at Town of 1770 for 3 fabulous days.
Our auspicious start began at Peter & Di's with a slashed rear tyre on the van, courtesy of a old tree stump. The sound of it going (filled with nitrogen) was enormous and we wondered what on earth had happened. Successfully repaired by Dave and Peter saw us thoroughly enjoy our stay there as we parked in their back garden which backed on to a beautiful golf course. Met up with other friends for a great stay.
Our next port of call was Mudjimba on the Sunny Coast which is almost like a second home to us now as we stayed there back in 2012 when we bought no. 25 Horseshoe Bend. A great house but far too big and needed much work, so that sold very quickly (surprised us greatly!), and we bought a Prado and set off south - essentially to the Southern Highlands south of Sydney - to look for a house. Based at Mo & Chris' lovely holiday home at Barrington Tops, we did venture south twice in the coldest part of the year to date, so we decided to head north and look at the Coffs Coast too. Nothing there, so finally, we bought a terrific caravan to go with our 4WD, thought it might just work if we took a little trip (!) and so on 16 July we headed north - and hopefully beyond - and now find ourselves at the glorious beach camping and caravan park at Town of 1770. We did a boat trip yesterday to Bustard Head light station - named by one Lieutenant James Cook - as was this little town of 1770 - wow, how beautiful it was with pristine beaches and sea such a vivid blue.
Tomorrow we are moving on, first north to Rockhampton, then westward.
