The Helmet!

The Header photo is what we see in the evening time :)
We are now in Ballina NSW (New South Wales) by the sea, 744km (462 miles) above Sydney, over 8 hours drive.  Heading to a place called Coffs Harbour for 5 days which is about a 2...1/2 hours drive south. 
In Hervey Bay a town up north we came across this cyclist with 'things' in his helmet to ward off the Magpies attacking him.

A Lighthouse in Mackay, Queensland.

Still travelling and of course heading 'south' with about 6 weeks to go before being home.
Family living in our house whilst we are gone is a blessing, knowing someone is taking care of it.

We are currently in a place called Mackay in Queensland, just down the road from Ayr and then heading to Rockhampton where they have 'great steaks'.

The winter weather is being kind to us at 23 (73.4 F) - 28 deg C (82.4 F) during the day and of course cooler overnight 18 deg C (64.4 F) approximately.

A pretty area by the Marina and a lighthouse plus a few restaurants and the boat ramp.
Photo taken with my phone.
