Thursday 6th August 2010 Today we made the trek down to Casino, where we intend to stay from Tuesday 17th. We took the scenic route through Bangalow, Alstonville and into Ballina. We made a quick stop here at Maccas for a cuppa and then progressed on to Lismore then followed the Bruxner Highway into Casino. We arrived at the Casino Village RV Resort at about lunchtime. http://www.casinovillage.com.au/
The facilities are ideal and there are several drive through sites. Seems to be plenty of available sites which is excellent. We met a lovely couple in a denning bus and had a great conversation and joined then for a cuppa before leaving and travelling on to Kyogle. (I might add that she is a fellow patchworker although a newbie and the resort has craft get-togethers 3 times a week). At Kyogle we stopped for lunch (about 2.00) and had a light meal at the Kyogle Country Cafe which was attached to the info centre. Picturesque countryside greeted us on the whole of the trip. I think this is definitely a lovely part of the country to be in. The area around here is known as the Northern Rivers. We dined at the Rugby League Club for dinner and enjoyed a deliciously cooked meal for $12. Saturday 7th August we drove back up the winding narrow track to Dunoon to buy some Macadamia nuts. They were reasonably priced and lovely and fresh. In fact I roasted some with a little bit of honey and cinnamon and they were delissimo!
Talk again soon
