Dec 5, 2014 - Visitors in Kiama

Our friends Linda and Trevor rang us today and they came down here to meet us from their home near the Hume Highway. It took them about an hour to get here. It was so lovely to see them again as we haven't seen them for a very long time. it's always great to see friends both old and new. We had a great chinwag and talked for a long time, so long in fact that we decided to have lunch in instead of going out. I made us lunch of bacon and egg, bread and salad. Plus jelly and fruit. Linda has a joke with her grandchildren that they have a...

Living the Dream

Aug 23, 2010 - A massive drive.

Hello, We succeeded in our plan to drive around Sydney in one day - 530kms! A relatively easy day with a few stops and the Jeep behaved perfectly up the hills. We left Port Macquarie at 7am and arrived here at about 3.30ish. We found a lovely spot at Kendalls Beach, Kiama. Only about 8 caravans here at the moment, but the cabins are nearly full. Yesterday we went and explored Berry, Gerringong, Shoalhaven Heads and Kiama - beautiful countryside here and lots of old buildings. Today we move on down a little further. Having difficulty...
