Where I stayed
On a hippie trail, head full of zombies...
As our car stereo is playing Man At Work's classic Aussie Reggae anthem "Down Under", we continued our adventure south.
Before we departed Batemans Bay, we kindly ask the reception to book a room for us in Narooma YHA, our next destination. We don't usually like to reserve hotel rooms ahead, the spontaneity of traveling is what we both treasure. But we realized after two days of near homelessness, and during the Aussie peak holiday season, it is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to hotel reservations.
We took the scenic seaview highway from Batemans Bay. Passing through bluntly named Aussie towns such as Batehaven, Sunshine Bay, Surf Beach, Mossy Point, Potato Point, & Guerilla Bay. Me and Juliette, after almost a month here in Australia are finally starting to feel like we belong to the land down under.
"Want some breakie?" I jokingly asked Juliette as we stopped for some petrol in Moruya.
"Oi, no worries mate" she replied with a stiff upper lip.
The Tasman Sea has turned more turquoise green as we headed south. The Southern pine trees are taller and more dense as we crossed the Eurobodalla National Park. I have never seen this part of New South Wales, and it is not what one expect to see when in OZ. This is as far away from Uluru, the Outback, and the Great Barrier Reef as one can get in Australia. Just after 1 pm, we arrived in Narooma, the name comes from Aboriginal for "clear blue waters".
The YHA in Narooma is a motel, and the owner / manager is super friendly. Showing us places to visit and his favorite beach around town
We relaxed for the day, sitting on the beach and eat fish & chips.
Living in a land down under
Where women glow and men plunder...
