Saturday 26th October.
It was off just before 9am this morning as our first stop was Mogo about 10k's away. The girls found a shop yesterday that makes personalised lockets and planned to buy another one each this morning. We arrived just after 9am and had to wait for about twenty minutes for the lady to arrive and open shop. Sue and Lynne had their lockets made up while we had a cuppa across the road at the local cafe. Lynne then decided to have one made up as a bracelet. We hit the road about 10.30am and arrived in Narooma about 11.15am. We booked into East's Big 4 Narooma Holiday Park and set up the van followed by lunch.
After lunch we went for a drive to "Australia Rock" which is a rock close to the break wall with a hole in the shape of Australia. From there we headed to Central Tilba for a wander around the Historic Town. We spent about an hour and a half browsing the shops and climbing to the town lookout for some shots of the countryside. From there we drove to Tilba Tilba and nearly missed it because we blinked so we continued on to Mystery Bay for a look. As we arrived at Mystery Bay there was a Camps 7 camp spot just above the beach with a fee payable to stay. There was about a dozen vans and campers already set up there. We headed back to Narooma with a stop at the pub with a million dollar view over the marina and harbour of Narooma.
A couple of drinks later and it was back to the van for a couple more drinks then into the van for dinner as the cold air rolled in.
Sunday 27th October.
Another long walk this morning around Narooma then back for breakfast. At 9.20am Sue and I headed to the local market on the oval next to the van park. We purchased some spice mixes made up in packets with recipe's on the back. When everyone was back from the markets we headed off to Bermagui for lunch down at Fisherman's Wharf. We arrived there round 11am and drove around to a couple of lookouts and watched some whales in quite close to shore. After a few beach photo's we headed for the Wharf Area and parked the 4WD's. We ordered our feed of
fish and chips and sat at the front of the shop looking out into the Marina.
After lunch we walked around some of the jetties at the Marina looking at all the boats.We decided to drive back to Narooma via Cobargo which is another historic town like Central Tilba. It was but half of the shops were closed so we had a look at most of the ones that were opened.
On the way back we called into the Tilba winery where Dave and Lynne did some tasting a purchased some of the wines. Sue and I are having a alcohol free day.Back at Narooma we refuelled and pick up some groceries at Woollies then back to the van for the rest of the afternoon.
An early night tonight to watch the grand final of the X Factor .

What am I going to read when you are home ?

Sorry Kaye but I will need a rest from the journal. After 180 odd days it gets harder and harder to continually keep up with it but I'm glad I did. We are going to get the journal printed up in the book version once we get home. It should be good to be able to sit down and go through it as a reminder of this fantastic trip
