Happy birthday to Julianne, Nancy & Lisa (Kirby) today.
This morning taken up driving and walking to the many lookouts over the ocean. We saw and followed a large pod of bottlenose dolphins around the coast at each of our lookout stops along the way. We collected some shells and pebbles from Pebble beach - fantastic rock formations and cliff faces along the way. Home for lunch before driving to Forster Keys this afternoon. The weather again today very sunny and warm.
We went to dinner at Sporties Club in Tuncurry - very nice. Fay had crumbed cutlets and Don American Spare Ribs.
Forster - Pacific Palms - Smiths Beach - Seal Rocks
We took off around 11am for our adventure today. Driving along the coast road our first stop is at Tiona to see the Green Cathedral. A church built in the woods with tree seats and a view of the lake at the rear of the lectern. Absolutely beautiful. We also see a peace pole one of many around the world. The whole area is preserved and nothing is to moved or touched.
We travel further south through the Booti Booti National Park looking at Pacific Palms, Blueys Beach, Smiths Lake and Boomerang Point along the way. The beaches and scenery is just awesome.
Seal Rocks was our furthest point today and well worth the trip. A long and very steep walk to Sugerloaf Point Lighthouse. Scenery again sensational, the blowhole worth the trip alone. We took our time and both reached the top of the light house past the keepers houses.
An easy drive back to Forster arriving at around 5pm. A very good drive today.
First visit today was to the Arts & Craft Centre run by volunteers. Many different crafts from pottery to paintings were all there on show. All good to look at and admire some peoples talent.
We then went to see the Historical Museum in Tuncurry and were met by Barbara & Bob. Brother & Sister and descendants of the founders of this area. We spent over 1 hour wandering around and gaining an insight into the history of these two towns. Most enjoyable.
Starting to rain today and this is the first time we have had to wear long pants and jumpers since leaving Dubbo as the weather is on the turn.
