Places starting with C: Cudgen to Duranbah


It has been a while since my last photographic outing. I have had my wonderful sister up with her husband and lovely dog Buffy.  They are grey nomads and shun the cold winter of Orange each year and meander up to the coast in their caravan and usually stay near me for a month.  We have had a great time and it was sad to see them go.

The only upside is I can now take some time to explore and take photos again.  So this last Sunday I went out with a friend to do just that.  The wonderful thing about where I live is that depending which way I want to go, I have the surf and the country are only minutes away.

I feel spoilt for choice.

Here is a “feel” of Cudgen and surrounds 🙂

    • Thanks Terry, they kept moving and the light was low so I was lucky but they could have been clearer if more co-operative. I didn’t have the privilege of hearing them they were very quite. Appreciate your follow Terry, it means a lot and thanks for your lovely comments 🙂


I would love to hear from you...
