Its our 12th day in Port Stephens so I now know quite a bit about the place and can tell you how entertaining it is. If you have anything you've ever wanted to know about the place ask away. My special subject is Fame Cove!
We are now back in Fame Cove after spending two nights at Soldiers Point Marina, and several nights at other anchorages. We needed to do some laundry, (everything seems damp) and shopping etc: We can highly recommend this marina. The facilities are superior, Eco rated top class, staff are friendly and helpful and we roamed around in the courtesy cars: a red Mercedes!
We have just witnessed a remarkable activity by four species of birds. ( no specific photos because we were spell bound) . Four Pelicans were paddling along the shore in formation. Small darting Little Pied Cormorants were behind and fishing below the surface by bobbing up and down. Scooping and skimming all around were larger Black Cormorants and darting in and out of the cohesive flock were diving Herons. The entire group just moved past like a street parade and continued onwards into the next bay.
No need to post where we are, but here it is anyway.
