All things Woolgoolga

Okay- time for a bit of catch-up :-)

Well - during the week I had 3 days of professional development for work at a lovely resort close to Coffs Harbour. Whilst we waited around for dinner one night we played some mini golf and walked along Sapphire Beach (it didn't get it's name from an over-abundance of sapphires on it's shores :-()

Then the Woolgoolga Curryfest 2013 was on ( - Woolgoolga has a large Sikh community and in 2006 they decided to showcase this facet of our community through a festival. On Friday night a friend and I went to see an outdoor movie called 'Monsoon Wedding' (equal parts humorous and dramatic) and we're glad that it didn't rain. We bought a mixed plate of chicken and lamb curry with a samosa - yum!! Unfortunately I only had my phone which takes crappy photos so no pictures :-(

On the Saturday we took a quick trip through the Curryfest markets during our weekend trip to the butcher's. Lots of Indian clothes, jewellery and accessories. Rain was still threatening!!
My sister and her family arrived shortly after this and spent the night visiting. Today the sun came out so we decided to make the most of it - a trip into Woolgoolga again for seafood and a walk along the beach - beautiful. Coffee afterwards at the Beachhouse Cafe.
 You can't see behind the plant but the sign says White Salt - where we get yummy seafood and thick cut chips!
Phew!! Can't wait to see what we get up to this week.

Some things coming up soon are

  • ANZAC Day 26th April - where we have a dawn service for all soldiers past and present who have served our country in war
  • Rotary second-hand book fair - ANZAC day long weekend May 11th-18th

Here's to all the LV's out there having a fantastic time :-)
