A travel series
Around the Campfire.
Having time-out from travelling The Man and I took the opportunity to step back into a place we had only recently re-discovered. We find ourselves here because The Turtle, our much-loved caravan requires a little TLC and we have always loved the Forster area in mid-coastal NSW, the lovely beaches and the tones of a gentler time, which can still be found here.
As full time travellers we are often asked where our favourite place is. The question comes in many forms such as: Where is the best place to holiday? Or… What is the most beautiful place you have seen? Even … Where is it that you will go back to again?
Thick in the universe of family, The Man and I are enjoying a bit of ‘family first’ time back at the Homesite. Once more we are parked up at the freecamp in our backyard and sharing time with those we love dearly.
We’ve been travelling now for some years and have reached a point where our beloved home on wheels is in need a bit of work. Like a house, the van suffers all that wear and tear you experience from constant use. On-going maintenance is a must! But what people don’t talk about or perhaps don’t experience as they use their vans intermittently, is refurbishment.
Cities of the world each hold their secrets and Sydney is no exception. This is a city we frequent, one The Man and I grew up in and it is a favoured haunt of ours. It also holds some charming secrets, hiding them in full view and it never ceases to surprise me how so many people overlook these things.
While growing up in Sydney, we had some favourite things to do and see when time and circumstance allowed us. These entertainments ranged broadly from the local beaches to rummaging through the bush, and of course the Manly Ferry ride across the beautiful harbour, particularly when there was a Southerly Buster blowing and the ride was a tad on the wild side. A much loved day out was exploring the City, looking for new wonders as well as the remnant of good ole Sydney Town at the Rocks and other places, those still haunted by the past and family memories.
