North Coast

Madge and I packed our winter woolies, donned multiple layers and headed north. First stop was Gloucester where a hot drink at The Roadwarriors Cafe was useful in warming the cockles of the heart. Onward and upwards to the lookout before arriving in Walcha where it wasn’t very cold overnight at all. The next morning […]
