Right I am almost up to date. Poor Alan, he is being ever so patient with me while I do this. Not much in the way of photos today as we came down to Coffs Harbour via the Pacific Highway and a highway is pretty much the same in any part of the world.
Once we had turned off the Pacific Highway we saw the start of a forest fire, the fire brigade and cops were already there putting out the blazes. Nothing dramatic but it does bring to light just how easy it is here for a fire to get out of hand. We are being very good carrying round a traveling ashtray (thanks Mum) it has been worth it's weight in gold so far.
Everything has been pretty easy so far but finding Skippy's has been something else, no Skippy does not live IN Coffs Harbour <g>, NOR Emerald Beach but in a place not initially found on the sat nav. A quick call to Will for directions and voila, found and now bookmarked.
We are staying in a rented house right on the beach at Woogoolga (try saying that drunk) with Skippy's mum, big sister and three kids, our room is just off from the house and absolutely perfect.

We don't have many plans to move today, Alan keeps nodding off so I will let him sleep. The washing machine has been a busy little bee and is already on it's second load, the sun is shining and there is a slight breeze so everything will dry quickly outside. We are heading back to Skippy's at 5:30 for a BBQ and then tomorrow is the big day, Skippy becomes a Mrs <g>.
