Left Nambucca on Wednesday 26th and booked in for 3 nights at Evans Head. With our great communication skills of Helen's yelling and Dan not listening we got Pepe and Lucy ready for the road. Hooked up and traveling in the rain, our first stop was New Italy, a little bit of Italy in Northern N.S.W., with the history of the Italians that came to the area back in the late 1800's. Good coffee and excellent Lasagne for lunch. Even the statue of David! Arrived about 3pm and set up camp, no yelling, I used the walkie talkie, makes it easier.
Morning walk accompanied by dolphins surfing the waves in lovely weather. Explored the area and at Chinaman's beach more dolphins surfing.
Fish Co-op had wonderful fresh fish, blue swimmers crabs and prawns which we enjoyed eating. Weather changed today Friday, very cool night, so glad we bought some warm clothes with us. Wind was very strong so walking or sitting out in it was not pleasant. Visited the local museum and then we stayed in Lucy watching some Queenslanders setting up their tents, blowing away, while they were trying to put them up. So glad we have Lucy and our tent days are over.
Heading for the Queensland boarder tomorrow first one we cross. Staying at Helen's sister's in Tambourine for a few weeks to see family and friends in the area.
Trying to upload some photos so hope the work.
