Settling In

We've been living in our new house since Saturday, December 27. If you look on a map, you'll see that MacMasters Beach is actually quite remote. It's located in the middle of a national forest/park.

Dave will have to buy a 2nd car sometime soon to be able to get to the train station. There is one located in Woy Woy and another located in Gosford.

The drive to Gosford is about 20 minutes. The roads are winding and have forest on either side. There is a little town called Kincumber just 5km up the road that has a grocery store, 2 fast food restaurants, Dominos pizza, thai restaurant, pharmacy, 2 estate agents, library, etc. There is also a Mitre 10 which is equal to Home Depot.

Once in Kincumber, the roads are wider, bigger and straighter. The distance to Gosford and Erina is about another 10-15 minutes. Erina has Erina Fair - a mall with every imaginable store inside. There's also a library. And movie theatres and an ice skating rink!
