Still resting for a while longer Day 177 – 179 to Sunday 30th September

Over these 3 days we took a short drive to visit a couple of beaches and inlets: Narrawallee Inlet, Narrwallee Beach, Mollymook Beach and Bannisters Point (Rick Stein has a restaurant here).

Did some bike maintenance, new pads on Janet’s bicycle and oil changes on both of them.

Also booked the hotel in Sydney, we are going there for a couple of days next week as tourists! It was difficult to find anything reasonably priced that was not a backpackers hostel so hopefully the Great Southern Hotel will prove to be good.

Lots of just pottering around, as you do.

We took another trip to check on the oystercatchers again, they were all ok but some stupid youngsters found it amusing to try and get the birds to swoop them if they got close to the eggs along with dog walkers ignoring the no dogs allowed signs! The birds have a hard time on busy weekends here.

Visited a few more fabulous places today, Dee Beach, Washerwomans Beach, Bendalong Beach and Cunjarong Point.

Superb clarity of water off from Dee Beach

Lots of people on Bendalong Beach, they are actually feeding stingrays here

A Jacky Dragon (around 6 inches long, a small dragon!)

At Cunjarong Point you could see some whales out in the bay, quite a long off though.

A silvereye makes an appearance

To finish the day what appeared but an Echidna rooting around after ants.
