For three nights we camped at the Sporties Club at Tuncurry a perfect spot from which to explore the twin towns of Forster Tuncurry, mid-east coast of New South Wales. So we’re back in what had been our home state since 2003 to visit friends on our way south. The accompanying photos were taken as we cycled, walked and drove around the area during our time in this beautiful part of the state.
Our coddiwomples have taken us as far north as Karumba on the Gulf of Carpentaria, North Queensland and how far south is, as yet, an unknown destination. It’s been 134 days since we left the four walls of ‘home’ as we knew it and set off in The Coddiwomple (Coddy) seeking adventure in Retirementland, and an adventure it has been.
From losing parts of the Coddy along the way to having the air conditioner clap out (both casualties of outback corrugated roads) it has been a journey to test patience and tolerance levels as we’ve lurched from one mishap to the next crisis.
But we’re a stoic duo and we press on – smiling even, and as time lapses we can now laugh at our misadventures in Retirementland. Maybe not all of them because some have been expensive to repair or replace. It wouldn’t be any different if we were still in our home, there are always repairs to be carried out and maintenance is a never-ending process. So too with a home on wheels.
And here we are back on the coast looking forward to the coming week as we spend time with friends. For the remainder of the post I’ll let the photos tell the story of what we found as we explored the area by foot, on our bikes or driving down the coast a bit to Boomerang Beach.
