The Queen's Birthday is the second last public holiday we have this year. And to take advantage of the long weekend, we packed our camping gear and headed to the South Coast for a quick revive-survive-breather. Our destination was located in the middle of a National Park, 5 hours drive South of Sydney and set in an idyllic location, surrounded by towering gum trees, tree ferns, cabbage palms and abundant wildlife.
We slept under a starry night, the sound of rustling gum trees, waves gently lapping on the shores, and the occasional screeching of native nocturnal mammals sheltered in the surrounding bush.
On our way down to the South Coast, we stopped at a couple of country town markets. My persistence in finding something old and chippy paid off when I found some old English tea cups; these will be my topic on my next post.
We just love being outdoors and enjoying the pristine bushland and coastline
Our morning walks along the beach proved to be the most delightful
These Eastern grey kangaroos love grazing along the sandy beach
|I made sure that I didn't go home empty handed. These are my finds: cuttle fish for our budgies, sponge, shells for my mason jars and a couple of pieces of pumice.|
