Christmas & New Year was spent a little further up the coast at Scott's Head. It is one of those little sleepy coastal villages that quadruples in size at this time of year.

The beach here goes for miles and at the other end there is another town which has a river

This is the view from the other end of the beach and the beginning of the estuary. I haven't walked the full length of this beach yet, it is a long way.

This is just one of the frangipanni trees in the garden where we stayed. The colour is just beautiful and this town is the only place I have seen orange frangipannis.

This is the grevillea that was growing outside our bedroom window. The wattle birds and the blue wrens would come & sit but never would stay still long enough for me to take a photo.

However this little baby kookaburra graced us with his presence one morning. He sat on our balcony for ages and did not fear us as we took heaps of photos of him. My eldest son tried to feed him bread but of course he was not interested. He would have much prefered a worm, lizard, cicarda, cricket of a piece of ham. All the Christmas ham was gone by this stage so we had nothing else to offer him.
