Day 1 – Wednesday 10th
A quick week away over the summer holidays. Months ago, I looked to book in at Myall Lakes again, but all the sites were booked out. Then some friends from the Wonderland Facebook group put up a post about an annual reservation they have at Jimmy’s Beach (Hawks Nest) that they can’t use this year. We ended up grabbing it, so now have a week here. It’s about the same distance as Myall Lakes, on the north side of Port Stephens, opposite where we stayed at Nelson’s Bay a year or so back.

We’re still adjusting to daylight saving and being on holiday, so we’re not up until just before 9.
After getting ready we drive into town around 10 to visit Raymond Island. Apparently, there are Koalas everywhere here.

A bit of an earlier start than we’d hope as daylight savings kicks in.
A pretty smooth packup and we’re out right on 10am

I’m not sure if the driving took it out of me, or if I’m starting to catch the cold that Justine has, but it ended up being a very early night for me, so I’m up and outside before anyone else.

A pretty good night’s sleep given it’s our first night on the road, often I find night one a bit of an adjustment. Hearing the ocean overnight was so pleasant.

A quick week away to Melbourne. Given we’re heading that way we electing to take the coast road and that will in some way complete the coastal lap that started 5 years ago.

Well what a blast that was. I don’t use the word “Epic” much, but I think this trip qualifies.
A touch under 6,100 K’m in 19 days.

Early morning start, I message Justine to see if she can book something. Doing on a computer will be easier than on the phones and she can look up stuff while we’re driving

Well the tyre seems to have held. The general consensus is to have the better tyre on the front and sus one on the back. Thankfully I’ve got two jacks so I swap the two tyres around.
As I’ve arranged to get the tyre repaired at 9am, I feel compelled to go. I’d be annoyed if I was a no-show. I would mind getting a 2nd opinion on the repair job, not that I’ve got tons of confidence in their opinion either.

Another great night by the creek and some Turtle come to say hello as we packup.
The lockable canopy on George’s ute won’t unlock with the remote, and he’s not sure where the key is. After some faffing about he’s able to get the rear tray down and open it from the inside.
