Today’s writer is Samba.
We woke up 7.00 and were supposed to leave the camping place at 9.00.
But it was pass 10.00 when we had finished packing.
We were late for checkout time so everybody had to rush to leave.
Yoda drove us to a light house in Yamba which has a good view.
Musashi was so excited and did a bridge….we don’t know why. Lol
After that all of us visited the Big Banana in Coffs harbour where everyone wanted to go so much.
We saved money for traveling, by staying at cheap camping places unfortunately we were crazy and decided to spend $19 each for Big Banana T-shirts, so bye bye one night’s camping fee.
Kojiro and Yoda even bought the same Big Banana baseball caps! They are such a nice couple. (lol)
We enjoyed spending time here and took some photos with everyone and headed to our next camping place, called NRMA Myall shores.
Yes, it was a good smooth run until then.
Kojiro navigated all the time but sunddenly Musashi insisted to navigate instead.
We were supposed to go to a petrol station before going to the camping place but he got off at the wrong exit and tried to make a quick detour. However, the quick detour ended up on a dirt track in the country side.
I thought the Mitsubishi Mirage wouldn’t make it on the dirt track so I suggested to everybody to do a u-turn and go back.
But Yoda said
[voice icon=”https://www.iwhp.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Screen-Shot-2017-09-06-at-8.17.55-pm.png” name=”Yoda” type=”l”] I have experience with this type of road by buggy before. So trust me![/voice]
Somehow, he had confidence to carry on but luckily it was a dead end so we did u-turn anyway.
It was a dangerous moment for the Mitsubishi Mirage and Kojiro was back on navigating duties.
We all survived and arrived at our camping place and Musashi saw two wild Kangaroos so she was very happy.
We had a BBQ and had a wonderful time. We went to have a shower but the hot water was runnning only 5 minutes. It was cold so we had to have a very quick shower.
The shower’s on 5 minutes timers and would tunr off after 5 minutes, but my shower’s timer always went back 5 seconds after it went to 0 seconds. How lucky was I.
I slept in the car and everybody else slept in the tent this time.
