Where I stayed
Hw Boutique Motel Port Macquarie

Flag of Australia  , New South Wales,
Thursday, February 26, 2009

After the leech incident, Ems was looking a bit anemic so we found that there was a Pie Shop on-route - Famous for having over 50 types of pies made daily including Kangaroo. We stopped in and bought some unusual-flavoured pies which seemed to perk her up a bit.

Port Mac is an interesting little surf town where we hunted around to find somewhere nice to stay and ended up staying in what was advertised as a "boutique hotel ", it was a simple but nice hotel with great views of the bay. We ventured out at sunset to buy some beers to accompany the remainder of our pie stash. Buying beers was harder than anticipated as I could not find any that were worth drinking... seriously a hard task in Aus... so we opted for a bottle of white wine and called it a night sitting on our hotel balcony watching the storm.

Next morning we went for a quick run along the costal path and along the harbor wall with "approved" graffiti-laden stones commemorating such things as family holidays, travelling friendships and weddings. There were some fun creative ones but the camera was in the room!

How big were the leeches?!
That she would look anemic??? I hope she's OK now, seems that the pie really helped her out.

Keep up the great writing, thanks for brightening my day guys.
