On Sunday we woke up a bit later and had a really slow morning before making a move to Lane Cove National Park as I’ve seen they have a tiny waterfall there. As we walked along the river there we passed by a place where you can rent paddle boats (or whatever they’re called) and I screamed out of excitement and we just had. To. Do. It.
So peaceful to just float around the river, even if our legs got quite sore.. The rental time was for an hour but think we were back within 30 and didn’t even go chasing the tiny waterfall afterwards.. Haha.
Tomorrow is the first day off work week, today I have just been cleaning and doing laundry, went down to the pool in the building for a few laps to work on my conditioning as I’ve been a lazy muffin since… Can’t remember so quite a while.
Over the long weekend we went away, first to Port Stephens and then to Port Macquarie. We have never been there before and it was a long time since we had a holiday so I can the least say that we were excited. One and a half hour into the road trip, the engine light went on in the car so had to do a sponateus stop at the Mazda repair, luckely they said it was safe to drive but that we should leave it to the mechanics when we’re back home.
On the way there we did a few other, more exciting, stops too, to get the most out of the road trip.
Then we also stopped at the Caves Beach, luckely it was low tide which was nothing we thought of when we arrived but later realised to be lucky as the caves apparently isn’t that accessible when it’s high tide.
Arriving to Nelson Bay and checked in to the hotel. Then it was full on exploring for two days. Went to the Tomaree Head Summit walk, twice, one during the day and one for the sunrise and it was absolutely freezing but absolutely wonderful when the sun came up. Gan Gan look out. Stockton sandunes which were amazing, like something in a movie, seeing the sand mesmerising flowing over the dunes of the breeze, I was stunned.
