Just over an hour away from our mountain hideaway is the Mid-North Coast of NSW, (our daughter E lives further north at Yamba which is on the bottom end of the North Coast).
After a lazy breakfast we headed east to the coast and found this spot just north of Valla Beach
Not bad for a winter's day is it?
It was a pleasant 20⁰C (70⁰F) which is lovely for winter but is considered way too cold for swimming in Oz. So we settled for a stroll along the sand.

The last thing we did before we headed home was have a bit of a poke around a series of rock pools, we didn't find much as the tide was coming in and the more interesting rock-shelf was covered by waves
