Here are some of our home town, a small seaside town on the New South Wales Central Coast, an hour from the centre of Sydney.
We have a typically beautiful Aussie beach and as it's a weekend getaway for Sydneysiders we have hotels, motels, shops, nearly forty restaurants and cafes all within about a square kilometre which is the town centre. The tourists are a bloody nuisance but without them we wouldn't have all the facilities we enjoy so we put up with them.
The name of the town is Terrigal, a word from the local Aboriginal language which translates as 'place of little birds', which I've always thought must be a tongue in cheek name, an example of Aboriginal humour.
Here's why - two pics we took last week of birds which flourish in the town. A bush turkey wandering around the street leading up to our house and pelicans on the beach:
