GEOFF and Enid Westaway love getting away from their home town of Yanderra, west of Wollongong, every winter and travelling north to warmer pastures.

Enid will knit and crochet while Mr Westaway paints and plays his banjo.

He only picked up the banjo two and half years ago after playing a mouth organ for 60 years.

Having had his voice box removed he couldn't play the mouth organ because he could no longer blow the air required.

"We stay in small towns and go inland to get away from the rat race." Mrs Westaway said.

The Westaways are staying at Murwillumbah showgrounds and had a stall at the markets from which they sell their arts and craft. They plan to have a stall at this weekend's Pottsville markets before packing up and keep on travelling.
