When I was first asked if life was good as a Grey Nomad, I was shocked! I’m not one of THOSE!!!
Upon reflection, Mark is grey haired, a caravan is my home and we are nomadic for a few months at least. So YES, we are partly Grey Nomads!!
Our drive to Nelson Bay took 1 1/2 days. Whitney’s car went very well towing Jayco, bikes, kayaks, etc, etc. Over 1,100 km – but good conditions all the way.
We have had a lovely first week. Plenty of swimming, cycling & paddling. The weather has been varied – a lot more sun and warmth than rain. Only put a windcheater on one evening.
Looking at the headlines in the newspaper early in the week it was decided we won’t buy any for a while.
We went shopping at Coles one afternoon, rather than drive the extra distance to ALDI. Only needed a few essentials, but when dishwashing liquid was nearly $3, left Coles, went the extra distance to ALDI and spent our $100 much more wisely.
Friday was our 32nd wedding anniversary. In true holiday style, 3 hours was spent seeking a venue for dinner. We had three criteria. View over the water, good food and reasonable price. We discovered several that met 2 out of three. Eventually found a lovely 3 out of 3 in Shoal Bay – CATCH Restaurant. It was great.
Wednesdays and Saturdays the local Fruit/Veg truck sounds his CLAXON HORN in the caravan park. Good prices, good quality.
