6th to 12th Nov. Coopernook to Laurieton-Dunbogan

        Thursday 6th
    Short trip to Laurieton this morning. We spent some time here in 1994 - 20 years ago - will enjoy catching up with friends again here. Driving through Laurieton on our way to Dunbogan van park, the town has gone forward big time, can't stop progress I guess, but it's no longer the sleepy little fishing village it used to be (not surprising really). Made our way to the van park and booked in for a week at $180.00. Couldn't wait to try my luck at fishing at the Fisho's wharf in the afternoon while Jim had a beer at the local pub. No luck with the fishing, but I had a ball. Jim met a few folk that he knew, but reckoned the Pub is not the same(not surprising again).

Koala near Van park at Dunbogan
     Taking the dogs for a late evening walk they reckoned there was something in the tree, yes, a Koala, only a few metres from the park and on a busy street corner.
     Watched it for while but it didn't do much. A thrill for me though and the pup's looked for it each walk for the next few days. It stayed in this tree for a couple of days and made it's way somewhere else over night.

      Friday 7th to Wednesday 12th
      We are having a lovely time in Dunbogan, catching up with friends in Laurieton, I am doing the tourist bit, catching up with all there is to bee seen. A few photos of the Camden Haven area.

all good fun at Dunbogan
         There is so much beautiful scenery to be seen, I had forgotten how lovely the area is, these are only a few of the sights we enjoyed.
     We are moving house tomorrow to another van park on the other side of the river, on Queens lake, a bit quieter I think and the weekly rate is only $120.00, the fishing should be as good.
     Catch you later.
