Banned on the Run, Day 84 – Making plans

Day 84 Wednesday 2/9/20 Darlington Beach, pleasant 21 We’ve decided that we’ll extend another week here as it is so relaxing. We’ll book the following week at Urunga, just south of Coffs before heading for home. Lockdown Stage 4 should be over by then. To our dismay Urunga is booked out but we manage to secure sites at Mylestom on the opposite side of the river. Kevin kangaroo is becoming a regular visitor at happy hour, no doubt hoping for a nibble. The Prado’s roast a piece of beef on the Weber. We eat under the awning, it’s a warm … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 84 – Making plans

Banned on the Run, Day 83 – Not the big lap

Day 83 Tuesday 1/9/20 Darlington Beach Our motor home neighbour corners the boys and talks incessantly barely taking a breath, Woody is pleased that he can’t hear much of the conversation. The story goes that he bought the motor home for his wife’s birthday and he wants to spend two years doing the big lap. They’re only a few days from home and already she wants to return to her stressful job. I wonder why? We return to Earworx for another wax removal treatment and hear the good news that a GP visit will not be required. A wax film … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 83 – Not the big lap

Banned on the Run, Day 82 – Let’s go to Dorrigo

Day 82 Monday 31/8/20 Darlington Beach, hot 30 With a quiet day ahead of us the boys decide that a trip up to Dorrigo would be in order. We hurriedly get ready and hit the road calling in to Urunga first as The Prado’s haven’t seen this little gem. The Bellinger Valley is shining in the sun. We’ve been here countless times now and it always captivates us. Big old European trees shade two storey wooden houses. There are paddocks of dairy cows and poddy calves and horses in grass up to their knees. Bellingen is bustling. There’s a whiff … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 82 – Let’s go to Dorrigo

Banned on the Run, Day 73 Coraki to Darlington Beach

Day 73 Saturday 22/8/20 Coraki to Darlington Beach We farewell VeeWee today, she’s going inland but only up the road to Casino. We’re returning to Darlington Beach on the Coffs Coast. We chug off down a now very familiar A1 freeway with a stiff tail wind pushing us. As we turn onto Solitary Islands Way another caravanner radios us to say that one of our bathroom hatches is flapping. Sure enough, the hatch above the toilet the one which had developed a crack at Wooli has been picked up by the tail wind and snapped backwards towards the front of … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 73 Coraki to Darlington Beach

Banned on the Run, A splash of colour

Aug 2020, Coraki, NSW Before we leave Coraki, it seems I must speak up in support of the town as it does appear that I tend to photograph those buildings that are most in need of paint, repair and renovation. To warm your hearts here’s a joyous and welcoming home that sports a rainbow of colours… Continue reading Banned on the Run, A splash of colour
