Where I stayed
Depot Beach Camp Ground
Well we've just had a really lovely relaxing week here at Depot Beach, certainly a jewel of the south coast. We both agree that the only way to describe the scenery when you are sitting on the beach, is that you expect King Kong to come crashing throught the trees at any minute. Murramarang National Park is a pristine area, where the forest meets the beach, and the waters are cool and chrystal clear. Fortunately for us a bit of research and determination to not pay a fortune to stay somewhere for the week before Christmas has paid off, we got a bargain rate stay and discovered a perfect location!
We spent every day down at the beach, morning and afternoon, Jacob had a blast in the rock pools (as usual) and Claire (still 4WDing) loved the sand and shells. The wild life was abundant with daily visits from King Parrots, Rosellas and a hord of Wallabies to our site. Our neighbors had a more intimate visit one evening, some possums invited themselves into their annex and ate all of their fruit.
Just a short drive away is a great spot, highly recommended to us, called Pebbly Beach. Upon arriving and walking on the sand we were a little puzzled as to why it was called Pebbly Beach as there was not a pebble to be seen, it wasn't until we got down to the water and the rock pools that we saw why. Pebbles of all shapes and sizes in just about every colour of the rainbow were there in the rock pools, and the rock pools were just beautiful. We had a fantastic afternoon here.
There really isn't much more to tell you about, as the only thing here is the wildlife, the forest and the beach - which is just what we needed - no running around sightseeing every day. It is hard to believe that Christmas is under a week away, we have managed to steer clear of the Christmas rush at the shops which is a welcome change for us this year. Just in case you are all worried about Jacob and Claire missing out on the Christmas festivities, we have hung up some tinsel, baubles and xmas lights, and when we get to Tathra (where we will be for xmas) we have a little tree to put up too.
The next time we blog it will be after Christmas Day, so Merry Christmas to all.
