Nambucca Heads...............

..........a very scenic part of the world.  Here are some shots taken during our walks over the last two days.   The views never get boring - the colours change constantly depending on the weather at the time and it is always beautiful - even on a dull day!  Hope you enjoy.









My constant companion and shadow!
