Coffs Harbour and around

Sue and Howard, our friends we made in Nepal, were exceptionally kind and had us to stay for a few days. Their dog Bluff was great company and he accompanied us on lots of local walks. Howard had just bought an impressive new camera and his pictures of the local wildlife - water lizards and fruit bats - were excellent.

On a walk along the beach Howard also pointed out some Grey Nurse Shark eggs, which had become dislodged by a recent storm. We also discovered a dead puffer fish, identical to one we had seen being caught in St Kilda, Melbourne.

Sue had been inspired in Nepal by Andy's Mullet hat and had bought one for herself. Perhaps this is a the beginning of new fashion trend...

Jen discovered an excellent ice cream parlour in Coff's Harbour. She looked like the cat who eaten all the cream as she tucked into a regular sized mango sorbet. A rare treat. A bit further up the coast, Woolgoolga has an old helicopter for a War Memorial.
