We arrived home this morning after a couple of days travel fom Port Macqaurie.
On Wednesday, we drove from Port Maquarie to Terrigal where we stopped overnight. On the way we pottered along a via number of the beaches along the coast. We stopped in to see our friend Ruth at Newcastle, where she was staying with her sister and family. We reached Terrigal in the dark and quite low on fuel.
Thursday saw us travelling down through Sydney and Wollongong to Bateman’s Bay. We had a quick stop for lunch in Nowra and then drove down the Pacific Highway. We were a bit alarmed to get an SMS message from Ruth during the afternoon saying that she had fallen and broken her right ankle. We hope that she is not in too much pain.
On Friday, we drove to Lakes Entrance. We stopped a number of times to look at some of the sights – especially the little National Trust Town of Central Tilba. This is a very scenic town and has a great chees factory where we bought a Truckle of fine tasty cheese. There ae no towns (just lots of forest) in the area around Cann River and Orbost, so we drove for a few hours without any stops. On reaching Lakes Entrance, we surveyed the town and finally selected a new multi-storey hotel at the Melbourne end of the town as our place to stay for the night.
We left Lakes Entance by 9.30 on Saturday morning and headed home, arriving by about 2.00 pm.
