The next night I 'treated' myself to a night at the Opal Resort just north of Coffs Harbour. I remember this as being the last word in luxury. Now it is slightly tired and delapidated. I had a nice room with a view over the ocean, and an early night.
Up for that early morning jog again, I was rewarded with a sighting of lots of parrots feasting on blossoms. So as soon as I had checked out I was back with my camera.
