Pete and Dawn and Forster

We arrived in Forster on Friday and set up at the caravan park with our site only a short walk to the beach. The weather is warm enough to break out the shorts and T shirts at least for the mornings and early afternoons. On Saturday morning we went to the Visitor Information Centre where the local weekly market was on and bought some tasty steak to have with Pete and Dawn and to put in the freezer. There were also some really yummy cup cakes which we decided we needed for Afternoon Tea. I also happened upon a Quilt and Craft Exhibition which was lovely --- lucky me!
Pete and Dawn arrived during Saturday afternoon and set up their very snappy tent with all the mod cons you could need and looked very cosy when they had finished. We went for a walk and watched the fishermen on the rocks although the birds were diving in and apparently having much more success than the fishermen. So far we are yet to see any fish in the buckets leaving the point but the birds are all looking pretty healthy! We were able to enjoy the burgundy beef that Pete & Dawn provided for dinner as we sat under the caravan annexe. Very civilised!
We enjoyed bike riding and walking with Pete and Dawn during their stay and it was lovely to have their company for a few days and sad to see them head south as we resumed our travels north. Ian compensated himself with a visit to Fredos for a pie. This is the best pie shop Ian knows of, and it’s absolutely amazing how we always end up at Fredos for lunch. Do you think he looks pleased with himself!
We’ve been able to Skype with Ray and Chris which is great so if anyone has Skype, please send your details and we can perhaps catch up on line. Alternatively we are ian.sue.martin on Skype, but you will be lucky to catch us as we are not on very often.
