Banned on the Run, Days 62 – 64 – Getting Itchy Feet

Aug 2020, Evans Head, NSW We’re getting itchy feet again especially after our feral neighbour experience. We cook burgers in the camp kitchen and toss up where we’ll go next. Boy that’s an easy decision, we’ll go to Coraki rather than taking up our option of a third week here. The Prado’s drive into Ballina to do some shopping and decide to have lunch at the RSL Club which is a favourite of ours as the meals and the view of the Richmond River are excellent. But lunch isn’t to be, they are knocked back for being from a Victorian … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Days 62 – 64 – Getting Itchy Feet

Banned on the Run, Where the waters meet

August 2020, Evans Head, NSW Briefly escaping our feral neighbours at Evans Head and with VeeWee and Nic in the back seat we drive over to Coraki just to see what’s there, as so many roads in these parts seem to lead to it.

Situated at the joining of the Wilsons River and the wide Richmond River, charming … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Where the waters meet

Banned on the Run – Covid Safety on the Road

Or Sanitiser and unavoidable touch points We have been ‘on the road’ for 60 or so days since leaving Victoria at the end of the first lockdown. With no plans we now find ourselves wandering around northern New South Wales trying to avoid the virus and discover warm and interesting places to enjoy. The places that we once raced past in our haste to get to Queensland. In this ‘road life’ it’s hard not to use public restrooms sometimes. We had intended not to use them on our way north but we hadn’t factored in our dodgy caravan door. If … Continue reading Banned on the Run – Covid Safety on the Road

Banned on the Run, Day 58 – Blonding up again

Day 58 Friday 7/8/20 Evans Head, overcast storm brewing, cold wet The park empties a little as Queenslanders high tail it for home before the border closes. We wake to a hot morning and heavy cloud but by 9:00am it’s chilly. Rain is forecast for the afternoon. I escape to walk on the beach while Woody cooks kidneys for breakfast. The rain starts mid morning. With little to do outdoors I colour my hair then we go to the RSL for lunch. Thankfully, we take the car as it is thumping down by the time we leave. We don coats … Continue reading Banned on the Run, Day 58 – Blonding up again
