I ran past the intersection of Polo Flat Road and Geebung St in Cooma, bit of a bush poetry reference going on here

Cooma was very quiet but the pub had Kosciuszko Pale Ale on tap and the clouds were good

Perisher was even quieter than Cooma, but they still had snow. Beard status: unpopular progressive album

Tathra is really beautiful. “Imagine being in the snow then driving 300 km to a beach like this” -some Australians

I haven’t been to Mystery Bay since I was a kid, when I thought these rocks were petrified wood, which apparently they aren’t. The geological term for Mystery Bay is a ‘kink zone’ so I was probably too young for it at the time.

It was surprisingly hard to find fresh oysters but driving to Pambula was worth it. There are some who would find oysters for morning tea, two days in a row, to be excessive, but they are weak.

The fattest, fluffiest, laziest cat in the world lives at the heritage village of Central Tilba, where they also have great cheese and scones.

Silvery gibbon at Mogo Zoo. These are Indonesian animals but I think it’s picked up some gestures from the locals.

Near Pretty Beach. I used to come on family holidays a few beaches north from here when I was a kid but never noticed how insanely lovely it is.
