Monday 9th April, (Belmont).Niece Jenny was busy Friday evening so our visit will have to wait until we are back in the area.

We have now moved on to Belmont on the shores of Lake Macquarie, which is not far south of Newcastle. This is a very picturesque area and has some excellent sunsets, apparently, so I am attempting to capture some sunset shots and have decided that this could become one of my sidelines wherever we are.

We are in a somewhat tricky situation at the moment whereas it being Easter and the area we are in, and further north to Forster, seems to be the holiday area for people from Sydney and Newcastle, and most caravan parks are booked out at this time of year. Due to this we have had to make a couple of lengthy trips to areas that can accept us, even though like Belmont only for a couple of days, hence we have booked into a park just north of Taree on Wednesday and will stay there for the duration of Easter.

After that we will venture up to Coff’s Harbour where we will have to sit down and work out where we will go to from then on so we can plan Linda’s trip home in June/July.
