Another Christmas – our last in Cobar – is drawing to an end and I’m looking forward to next year’s coastal Christmas, with its mandatory prawns and oysters.
Of course, there’ll be quite a few good memories and people that we’ll miss because Cobar has been nothing if not welcoming. From the garbage man when we first arrived, who waited just long enough for me to remember that it was bin day, to the postie who runs the Rural Outback Animal Rescue and, on Christmas Eve, takes bags of dog treats to all her “little mates”, to our beautiful neighbours, who surprise us with human treats over the fence.
From Christmas house decorating to teddy bears and wheel rim / shoe trees on the road into town (who knew?) – through the best of times and the worst of times – Cobar has been quirky and fun.
May we all have a peaceful and relaxing Christmas with better times ahead in 2022.
