Sydney to Jervis Bay
28.02.2014 - 01.03.2014
We're sad to leave Sydney today but we start our next leg south, following the coast down to Jervis Bay, driving along the Grand Pacific Drive. Through the Royal National Park the scenery down ain't bad at all with dramatic coastline, lush green pastures, cliff top villages and hills to our right , crossing rivers and through coastal rainforests
Stopped off at a couple of charming seaside towns on route, Coledale and Kiama small laid back, and village like
We drove through Huskisson at the top of Jervis Bay apparently has one of the prettiest harbours on the south coast to our b@b at Vincentia on the shores of JB. The bay is absolutely stunning, unspoilt with pretty much no one on it. We arrived late afternoon and after a brief chat with our host we took the short walk (300 metres) to the bay, we saw whales spouting great plumes of water from the sea, we learnt they were migrating south to the Antarctic were quite late to do so, pretty cool for us to see. We went back to our b@b where Irene our very welcoming host poured us a chilled glass of Wolf Blass, we had an interesting conversation as she told us tales of coming over from Scarborough in 1956 as a little girl and growing up in Aus, how she hated it etc. The place we're staying seems typical rural Australia, a typical Aussie outback house Irene has two dogs, chickens running wild who follow the older dog around, the garden's very unkempt but full of herbs she uses for cooking, also say's she often has kangaroo's come into the backyard.
The weather has turned today but at least it's still warm! We spent some time in Huskisson today a lovely small town with a very pretty harbour, then went onto Hyams beach, where a very simple wedding was taking place on the bay
