“In life everything happens for a reason. People meet not by chance but by fate. In meeting however… who cares about reason? I'm just glad we did.”
We met Trish from Dunoon in Hampi, India last year. We had breakfast together in Bangalore and bumped into her again in Mysore. She gave us her contact details and told us to let her know if we were ever up her way as she had a spare room. Little did she know we would take her up on it! When we were going to be in Lismore we emailed Trish to see if she wanted to meet for coffee but later, when we lost our house sitting, we had to ask if we could park our van in her driveway so Nick could attend his course in Byron Bay. As we were trying to sneak out on Saturday morning to drive to Byron Maggie decided to make the most god awful noise. We are sure we woke the entire neighbourhood. Nick worked out that the fan was hitting something and that she was undrivable. We quickly joined the RACV only to find out we had a broken harmonic balancer and needed to be towed to Lismore.
We enjoyed our walk on the beaches!
The dogs certainly enjoyed the company and Nick quickly had a new best friend in Roy!
Meet Macka who is blind.
Nick found some time for a surfing lesson at the main beach in Kingscliff.
Today we are off to Banora Point, Tweed Heads to do a work exchange with Little Trace, owner of Goose Bumps clothing, and an old friend and collegue from my London days.
Thank goodness for our friends, new and old helping us 'get by' on the northern coast of NSW. This post is for you guys! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
