Nelson Bay - Day 2

Day 116 - Wednesday 4 September 2013

Mainly sunny in Nelson Bay today with forecast temperatures of 13 to 22 degrees.

We noticed this morning that Hobart is to have a maximum of 21 degrees today - so it must be nearly time to go home!

Today we walked around to the Nelson Bay town centre, about 2 km each way, for papers and a coffee - but shock/horror they were sold out of Australians by the time that we got there. We also dropped off some scripts at the pharmacy while we were there. After walking back to the caravan park we decided to drive over to Salamander Bay Shopping Centre for that elusive Australian. On the way back to the caravan park we drove up to the Gan Gan Lookout for a few photos. The lookout hill has numerous Gymea Lillies that are a very large native flower common in this area. The Lillies stand 3 to 4 metres tall with a flower head up to 250 mm in diameter.

G'day TwoAcers and the Blue Healer.We have been having a butchers hook at some of your old blogs and find them very interesting, especially re the places we have visited ourselves like Blackall,Longreach Winton etc.

Nelsons Bay is not bad,perhaps a tad big for us but it's only about 2 hours drive from our place.If your're looking for something to do you can catch the old ferry that goes from Nelson Bay to Tea Gardens,have lunch at the pub and catch the ferry back later on.
