The Camden Haven area on the mid north coast, is one of our favourite spots in the state, and it was here that we spent a couple of days to relax and unwind after a couple of stressful weeks due to the illness and passing away of Lynn's mother.
We spent Friday doing a walk around the 'Flower Bowl' track in the Kattang Nature Reserve and driving to a couple of spots in the adjoining Crowdy Bay National Park.
I'm sorry that I can't name some of these plants as they are new to me, I've stepped a little out of my comfort zone.
