week 2 of our family holiday

Anthony had to work the second week of our holiday, so we spent 3 nights in Balina. the hotel we picked was fantastic, shame it poured with rain for the entire time we were there and the kids were couped up inside cause the grounds were beautiful and beach was just across the road.
But thankful for the rain I did enjoys spending Sunday watching Bathurst and was over the moon with the results!
Tuesday saw us driving via Lismore and down the inland road to Coffs.
finally the rain stopped! ant had a few stops on the way down to look at...... I'm really not sure, but there was power line and towers!
We had a free day on Wednesday so we jumped in the car and headed up towards Dorrigo. The country side was just gorgeous. We had a great pub lunch and took the kids for a walk in the national park and to check out some beautiful waterfalls.
Thursday we decided to head home a day early, but we had to go to a site visit first. Well, that was an adventure. Supposedly we were on a marked road but i dont think the overgrown vegetation knew that or the washed away road. It was starting to get a little hairy when Ant stopped and took a walk to see how far it was out, it was only 400m, but in that short distance we got the ute bogged! We took the Territory into town to try and find a 4WD with a winch to help us get out, but the local loggers pulled us out! It was certainly a fun filled morning!

Here are a few piccies from our day up at dorrigo.

One day I will get a photo of the two of them being nice to each other:)

Dorrigo Falls

And a nice (yet windy) family shot at the national park.
