The Nambucca Valley on Instagram | photos

YOU can take the boy out of Nambucca, but you can't take the Nambucca out of the boy, as they say - so when Jack Stewart spied an octopussy - it was always going to lead to a close grapple.

That's the cracking cover shot of this week's gallery of your photos shared on Instagram.

And what a cracker barrel it is.

No 1.7kg wagyu steak this week, but did someone say lamb at the Macksville Ex-Services - shank you, shank you very much.

And there's a poignant grave for a lad whose stick insect passed away - plus a baby shower, some pumping wave action from Chris Hewgill, and Jai Miller snags one big fat tailor.

And welcome aboard to Valla Beach snapper Ryan Purnell, and his stunning capture of the eery vibe at Mt Warning.
