Mid-north coasting

I'm just back from a week staying with my mother near Port Macquarie, on the NSW mid-north coast. We took a couple of drives inland to the Comboyne Plateau, Ellenborough Falls and Walcha.  It's a beautiful part of Australia - rugged mountains with tall eucalypts and leafy tree ferns and valleys of lush farming land.

 Rural mailboxes...near Elands

 St Mark's Anglican Church at Marlee (between Elands and Wingham), built in 1874 and surprisingly still going. 

  Probably time for a new cross though

It's a damp part of the country - where there's timber, there's lichen and moss.

Well, it looked threatening, but nothing happened.
