I am getting jealous of my friend who has started a photo a day blog the Sunshine Coast Daily. I miss posting daily like I did for nearly a year for my Blue Mountains Journal -- though I don't need that pressure right now.

We have lots of visitors at the moment, with not even a chance to get out wayfaring, so I will post a few pictures from a trip we did to Forster about this time of year.

My Pretty Rose Tree by William Blake
A flower was offered to me,
Such a flower as May never bore;
But I said, ‘I’ve a pretty rose tree,’
And I passed the sweet flower o’er.

Then I went to my pretty rose tree,
To tend her by day and by night;
But my rose turned away with jealousy,
And her thorns were my only delight."

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
