    the locals will tell you that this is the best fishing area on the mid-north coast, but everyone says that.

    When I arrived here earlier in the week, I arrived to see a couple busy packing their fishing gear and getting ready to leave. When they saw me with the camera, they said that you will have more luck with your equipment than what we did.... LOL. I said what, aren't they biting? We can see the darn things but they're not the slightest bit hungry. The man said he'd never seen anything like it before.........hundreds of fish and even the toads wouldn't bite.........wouldn't it.......... Turned out they were Melbournians holidaying in nearby Urunga and having a change of scenery for their last day. Ah well.

    You may come across the railway line on the north coast off an old country road. Most are electrically opened and closed but there are the occasional tracks that aren't protected.

    Road that crosses the main rail line, North coast.

    Favorite thing: Just sitting there and soaking up the beautiful day .........surprisingly, in the picnic area and inside a weather shed there was a violinist practicing or composing some music. What more could I want...........and then..............out of nowhere.................

    Fondest memory: A speed boat. No, no skiier behind.........what was the rush. I had only just witnessed an amazing landing by a pelican..........how beautiful..........then.......the boat.

    Peace shattered.
