Urunga

Standard

What a funny name for a Town! There really are some funny names for towns in Australia.

We have moved on from Nelson Bay and ventured north. We are now residing in Urunga, a small beachy town south of Coffs Harbour.  Why are we here?? My Oma and Aunty Carol live nearby.

We had so much fun in Nelson Bay, I’m the last few days we did some more fishing, we sailed, we swam, we fed some Kangaroo’s and we went yabbying.  
I have so many pictures to show from the animal farm but my Aunty Mel took those ones on her camera so you’ll have to wait a little bit till mummy can get them.

At first I was a little unsure of these hoppy Kangaroo’s. Most of them were bigger than me and they had no awareness of personal space but after a while i warmed to them. Mummy and Ophelia loved them. My favourite animal were the Koala’s. They just chilled in a tree and let us pat them. They are so furry and cute.

On Saturday Heike and David came to visit us. It was a really nice day on the boat and Poppy got the bbq going and Heike and David were not the only visitors we had on Saturday, we had some dolphins stop by and say hello on our way back to the Marina. 

Australia day was lots of fun. It was a beautiful sunny day and the water was calling us so we sailed over to a little beach and moared.  My Omi took Ava and I in the Kayak, she did all the hard work to get us to shore and she did a good job, it didn’t take long and we didn’t fall in.

Once we were on shore, we all had a paddle and splash then Poppy whipped out this interesting contraption.  It sucked up the sand then he would push it out again and in the sand he sucked up we had to sift through and look out for Yabbies.  Yabbies are great fish bait so we collected a whole bucket full so we could do lots of fishing in the afternoon.  Mummy took a video of us doing it becuase she was very proud of me holding these little critters. They were funny, they had one big claw and they didn’t stop wriggling!

It was sad to say goodbye to my Aunty Melissa and my cousins but I had so much fun with them all week. They are all so much fun and I really love Omi and Poppy’s boat.

So now we are in Urunga and the fun has definitely not stopped….. but I will keep you in suspense because I heard we are doing something really fun tomorrow. So I will tell you all about the next part of my trip then.

About Harlow London Stanley

With a lot of help from my mummy, I am writing this blog to help my friends and family stay in touch with me when we move to London in a few weeks. I am going to miss everyone and I am not very good at writing emails and I can't talk yet, so skype can be difficult. So we thought this would be the most fun way for everyone to see what I am up to. At the moment I am almost 6 months old so there are few big milestones ahead of me, teeth, crawling, walking and talking are just a few that I hope to master this year. All of my family will be home in Australia and will miss these amazing moments, so I promise to post them with pictures, videos and little diary entries as soon as they happen.
