No sunshine today, but we've had a good stretch of fantastic weather!

We didn't hear a single vehicle drive by us all night, just as we expected. We got up at daybreak though, and drove into the town of Tuross Head.

We found a fairly level parking spot, close to a public bathroom. The only thing it was missing was some sunshine, but we had woken up to overcast skies so the shade in our parking area didn't make much difference!

We got some computer work done, and then set out for a walk around town.

Just another Australia beach!

Can you tell why this is called "One Tree Point"?

Tuross Head has a beautiful golf course.

This guy has a nice view facing inland!

Ruth, and the sea.

The river had a beautiful color to it.

You may have noticed that there was no sunshine today. And in fact, we even got a few raindrops. That's fine though. We made a plan to go into Narooma and use their library.

On the way, we stopped at the village of Bodalla, where there is a popular cheese factory. We thought maybe we would pick some up. After all, buying direct from the factory should save a couple of dollars, right?

Wrong.

Their 3 year old aged cheddar was $5.50 for a tiny little 95 gram slice of cheese. You'd think there must be flakes of gold in it. Yes, that equates to $58 AUD per kilo ($53 CAD per kilo, or $18 USD per pound).

For cheddar cheese.

We would have felt guilty eating their free samples knowing that we weren't about to buy any.

So we left.

They had some fun statues though.

The Bodalla Anglican Church is pretty.

Built in 1885, it's just a baby as far as world churches go.

We drove further south to the town of Narooma, and stopped in at their library to do some computer and internet work for a couple of hours. It's a nice town, and we might spend a couple of days here.

I checked out a few overnight possibilities, and this area is fairly RV friendly. We found a great spot to spend the night. There was a little bit of trash lying around, but I went out and cleaned everything up.

Great spot to spend the night.

Here's where we are right now...

  1. Visitor centers are also a good spot for Internet access.

    1. It's actually not the internet that we need when we go to the library but their power. We have tons of cheap data available to us through our phone but we are lacking power.

  4. Ruth, what were you thinking as you looked out over the water in the picture above?

    I woulnd't pay that much for cheese either. I found a cheese recently that was $15 U.S. per pound. Sorry, there's cheese and then there's cheese. I won't eat Velveeta either but I do have some common sense!

    1. I'm not sure that I was thinking about anything in particular, I think I was just drinking in the beautiful view that I had. :-)

      Nope, I know good cheese is a little more expensive but to us that was just ridiculous. We spend a bit more for good cheese as well. We have never bought Velveeta ever in our lives and we stopped buying cheese slices about 20 years ago.
