A few pics especially for Betty not all beaches not all sunny
While we were in Coffs Harbour area one day they received 500mm of rain.

This was one of those rainy days..



So was this..



And this..



The next day it was fine and sunny at Coffs Harbour.




Harrington Mid NSW Coast this was a great walk and so long.



Up the top of that pic above was Crowdy Head



Very North NSW is Lennox Head



And Yamba.



A close up of the wild surf..



I remember it was raining when I took this one at Hat Head
It ended up heaving down so we went back to the Cabin..



I hope you all like them

Love all of them, Mary-Anne, but especially that beautiful shot of the pelican. I can almost hear the gulls and smell the sea.

Fantastic shots MA I do love the first few on the rainy days espcially, they are so eerie and mysterious and the colour of the rocks is a painters dream . of course all the trest are great shots, we really are sea people are'nt we , we hug our coasts everywhere .

Thanks Mary-Anne for the fabulous photos.. I can relate to all those places bar Lennox Head. All of them are fabulous places...we have a very soft spot for Harrington..we went there fairly regularly when we first met. Yes, that break wall is a long walk..the air out there is so clean and bracing ...it clears the dust out of the lungs.
We also really enjoyed Yamba...we went to the raffles at the club via a bus that picked us up from the caravan park. We don't normally do the raffles bit...but when you are on holidays you tend to try a bit of everything.
Thanks for showing us such fabulous photos.

Gwen Thanks .. First off I will say I wonder what happened to my reply to you that I wrote late this afternoon before going out to water the garden again.

I love the rainy day ones too they are certainly different. Yes we are sea people I could not imagine living inland and never seeing the ocean water but then we have the best climate for it don't we..

Thanks Fay.. I had a funny idea you would Fay and speaking of that break wall I seen a interesting sign on it my battery had gone flat and we were a long way from the car so Tony took this pic I will go find it and put it on.



Thats a lot of fish 33,000 and I wonder what other fish he caught.

I loved Harrington we spent all day there after looking at the lighthouse I told Tony I wanted to live there, he preferred Yamba I had visions of gardens full of mossies with all those mudflats around if we lived there gasp Yes we walked right down to the end of the Yamba break wall too..

I liked where it looked like you could almost walk across the water at Harrington to that other point and the sand was so white, its a beautiful place its a beautiful area all the way up the Coast was, this was one holiday I loved, We are going back another time inland this time as I wanted to go see that waterfall way we had planned on going there the day we left Grassy heads for Coffs Harbour, it was closed of course as the roads were under water

I'm with Gwen on the lighting in those stormy shots. I was going to say my favorite is the third photo, then thought you'd reckon I was nuts. Laughing

No way would I think that Betty you have a good eye.
And would you believe those rainy pics are favoured more on the art site than the sunny ones..
