Raymond Terrace and the Coppins'

G'day,

After a 2 hour drive with the most amazing scenery, we arrived in Raymond Terrace. I thought that the Coppins' house was called Raymond Terrace, but its actually the name of the town/village in which they live. We went on a little tour to see the military base, Will's prep school, the river, local pub, church, etc. and then ended up at their home! I met Oli straight away but Will had gone to school.

As I am only here for 4 days we thought it best to use every minute to its full. So that afternoon at 2 o'clock we went to Oakvale Farm. They have a huge collection of animals, many of wich have been hand reared and were very people friendly. As well as milking a cow [which I must admit one could do at Bockets Farm, 5 mins down the road from Robinswood... but I have SOMEHOW never done before], feeding goats, pigs, duck, geese and seeing many other unusual animals such as pellicans, wombats, dingos, a cassowary... I got to feed, be climbed on by and dance with kangaroos! I was a little intimidated to start with due to their slightly angry looking, constantly frowned faces, but they were all vey calm and willing to climb all over you in their attempts to get to the food!

We popped down the local pub that evening. The view looks out over the river, and a lovely sunset and a thunder storm in the distance made for a beautiful meal.
