The Places You'll Go

I’m On The Road!!


Where is it going to fit?

Well I’m finally on the road!!  I didn’t get very far initially! After leaving the beautiful Elvina Bay, I drove 2 kms down the road to the Tuites at Newport!   Once again Andy, Virpi and the boys took me in for a couple of days, thanks guys.  I’m thinking about getting a sign for their guest room door…”Mick’s Room”.    I drove out of Sydney a little later than anticipated, Thursday actually.  I did fit all that stuff into the rocket, I can’t believe it myself.  After picking up an awesome custom made awning from North Sails, I cruised up the coast and spent my first night on the road at friends Cath and Tom’s house in Terrigal.  Great meal, great conversation, a really pleasant first night on the road.

Day 2 an hours drive to brother John and Lydia’s, so good to catch up.

I’m only 2 hours out of Sydney, it is such an amazing  coastline, deserted beaches, stunning views.  I rose early to see the sunrise at the Norah Head Lighthouse, check out my photos, I’m amazed at how good the camera is on my iphone.

Day 3  I cruised up to Silverwater on Lake Macquarie where I stayed at a families house that I’ve know for a very long time, the Spithills – I’ve been involved with all the Spithill’s sailing careers in one way or another – such a great family.  A beautiful setting right on the lake, so good I set up my office under my awning, on the lawn.  After a couple of days it is going to be hard to leave.

The beetle is on fire.  I’m cruising at a top speed of 72kms per hour.  A lot of cars and trucks have overtaken me, but I must admit I have overtaken my first truck and no it wasn’t parked on the side of the road.

Heading to Hebbo’s mum and dads at Bulahdelah next.
