Hi everyone, Ben and I are still in Shellharbour. Ben has found some bricklaying work with a local crew and they are very happy with his work ethic and quality. Being back on the tools is making him a little sore and stiff again but the money will be great to help us on our way. We are staying here now until Feb 18th then we will free camp our way towards Queensland. We have decided that if we keep going at our current pace we’ll never go home and so after this stint in Shellharbour we are going to do our best to move north a little faster.
I have been hanging out with the dogs during the day, doing washing and organising lunches and dinners. I have been going for walks along the shore everyday and I thought I’d share some of the photos I took this morning.
The seaside pool is really nice. The sand here is quite course and shelly but the flat, red coloured rocks are great to walk along at low tide. There is some nice rock pools, which remind me of miniature windows that allow you have a little peak at some of the secrets of the sea.
We’ve been eating really well lately from satay beef to chicken schnitzels to sweet and sour Mako shark, it’s all been yum. Steak and flathead with vegetables will be on the menu tonight.
For all you honey enthusiasts out there… if you can get a hold of this honey that we found at the ABC Cheese Factory in Central Tilba do it! It’s very delicious.
