Shoal Bay / Nelson Bay

Last weekend we had nothing planned and as it was Father's Day on Sunday I convinced David to head north for a night. The Saturday was cold and incredibly windy, and stuck in a caravan park after a 3 hour drive, none of us were best-pleased with the situation. 

However Sunday dawned sunny, still and perfect. On my morning walk I spotted a secret pirate's cove, a tiny patch of beach sheltered by great slabs of red rock. We spent the morning skinny-dipping in the cold turquoise water and building forts until it was time for lunch. It was my perfect day, being somewhere wild and beachy with the boys. At one point Cal said, "Mum, why do you keep making that smiling face?" 

A sure sign this needs to be done more often.

After fish and chips on the beach we took a spin on the bush toboggan at Nelson's bay (excellent fun) before heading home to Syders.
