A sad trip away to the mid-north coast town of Taree to attend the funeral of Lynn's uncle, Norm Place.
Norm Place 1929 - 2013.
We were only in Taree for 2 nights, 15th - 16th Dec. Before leaving we took the opportunity to visit a friend who had just moved to a property outside of Wingham.

The black prince was valued at "three cherrynoses, four floury bakers,
five yellow mondays or a thousand green grocers" by Australian journalist
Peter FitzSimons in his childhood (Wikipedia).
