After Phillip Island we followed the coast north. We’ve never spent much time down that way, usually just travelling through on our way to Phillip Island, and we haven’t even done that for many years.
Our first port of call was at Eden. We found a nice caravan park and went for a short stroll on the beach. It was quite blustery.
We had a better look around the following morning, but first things first, breakfast. I don’t think I mentioned that I refused to cook while we were away. It was one big moveable feast.
Breakfast parfait. It was so good, and found at a little organic cafe called “Sprout” in Eden.
Now to see what is around. “Snubby” by the sea.
Continuing on with my theme from our trip to the Isle of Man, another lighthouse.
Next town was Merimbula. I just loved these pelican sculptures.
Tathra was the next port of call… at the old wharf. There were so many people fishing in one corner.
And they were all catching fish. I can’t remember the name, but it is the smallest of the tunas. They were just a nice sized fish.
Looking at the bird book, I think this is a “little tern”. It was trying very hard not to get blown off it’s perch.
Bermagui was our next stop, with another shot of “Snubby” by the sea. It was fun calling in at all the towns along the way.
Watch out for the goanna crossing the road. I don’t want him in the sidecar with me.
Yes, another light house.
And a nice spot for fish and chips for lunch.
We had planned to stop over at Batemans Bay, but it was so windy that we thought our little camper would blow over, so we kept going up to Braidwood, which is a lovely town.
We got an early start the following morning and arrived home before lunch, which gave us lots of time to get unpacked, collect the cat and restock the fridge. It was startling how dry it was as soon as you left the coast……..and hot, so hot.
It was a lovely few days away. We felt that our batteries had been recharged. Sometimes a little break is just as good as a longer one.
