Pelican kingdom

This time, we are in Camden Haven, and to be more specific, in the little town of Laurieton. We tied up at the United Servicemen Club, free for five days, with shower and toilets.
To get there we first went to Cape Hawke Harbour, with a nasty bar at the entrance. We had tied up on the side of Tuncurry, also a very small town, but with a post office, a supermarket and a few small shops. Again there, the berth was free.
Here in Laurieton, we also had to get through a bar, but much nicer than the one in Cape Hawke. We are 3 miles up the river, in a very quiet place, with not much to do apart from walking up and down the main street. The show is provided by a bunch of huge Pelicans waiting for people to come back from fishing and throwing to them the guts of the fish.
We are leaving this afternoon to sail overnight to Coffs Harbour where Bernard and Claudine will leave us to fly to Sydney and then on back to France.
