Coffs Continues

Well we have certainly been in Coffs Harbour longer than we expected. We are staying here as we sort out a medical issue. It's nothing too serious but enough to stop us sailing on just yet.

We haven't been idle though and have celebrated both the girls birthdays with friends and visiting family. D'Arcy turned 7 and Ava turned 10 with the obligatory cakes and birthday dinners for both.

We have also explored the local area with trips to Urunga where there is a great mangrove boardwalk and to Bellingen to the fantastic markets and cafes there. We also had a great visit from Emma's mum  and have had a few catchups with her Uncle John who lives in nearby Grafton.

Grandma visits
Last week we ventured up into chilly New England to visit Robb's family in Armidale. It was great to catch up with rarely seen uncles, aunts and cousins who met us with wonderful hospitality.

From here we went to Byron Bay where the weather was foul and the crowds huge though it didn't stop us walking out to the most Eastern point in Australia and visiting the lighthouse.

Coffs has lots to offer with our good friends Mel, Bryan, Freyja and Milla living here along with a myriad of walks, beaches and little gems like Australia's only vegan Japanese cafe, locally blended coffee, farmers markets and an amazing organic bakery!

Not sure how much longer we will be here but there's still lots of time left in the year and Coffs is a warm and usually sunny place to hang out for a while.
