Banned on the Run, Day 19 – Covid Dancing

Day 19 Monday 29/6/20 Moonee Beach, 19 forecasted rain was a sprinkle. The blueberries we bought in Woolgoolga are large and sweet and perfect for breakfast. Elle & El Prado go into Coffs Harbour for haircuts. We too go to Coffs taking VeeWee and little poodle Nic and a long shopping list which means a  tiresome day of driving in circles, in traffic. Gosh we hate traffic. I do get to buy a pair of jeans and a warm coat to guard against the colder than expected outdoor evenings. Perhaps my outlay will be enough to force Qld’s premier to … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 19 – Covid Dancing

Banned on the Run, Day 17 – Moonee Beach

Day 17, Saturday 27/6/20 Nambucca to Moonee Beach, overcast 17 We girls put our collective feet down and insist on a late start because we can’t check in at Moonee Beach until 11:00am and for heaven’s sake it is only 62kms away.

After much deliberation we settle on Moonee Beach which VeeWee recommends. A walk along the river to the seafood shop yields more than sushi and delicious blackfish. A pod of dolphins are powering upstream fishing in the river. Hundreds of fish are easily visible in the water. I greet a bloke at the clothesline and he replies with “Any day I don’t get planted is a good day.” The Covid case … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 6-16 – Any Day

Banned on the Run, Day 6 – 16 – Covid Dining

June 2020, Nambucca Heads, NSW Dinner at the RSL At 6pm we are picked up out front by the RSL courtesy bus (just us) and ferried to the club. Our temperature is checked, our hands are sanitised and we are shown to our well distanced table. Being in a very large building they are allowed 250 patrons and yet it seems much quieter than it has in the past. Or should I say pre Covid. We have the local specialty Black Fish or Luderick in a macadamia crust followed by walnut crepes. I can’t remember the last time I had … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 6 – 16 – Covid Dining
