After a few hours drive we arrived at Nambucca heads. We were a bit too early to book into our cabin so we went exploring.
Firstly we walked along the edge of the river.
It is a very pretty place.
Then we drove up to the Rotary Lookout. The view of the Nambucca River lazily entering the sea was delightful.
We drove a little higher to the Captain Cook Lookout and the view was even more stunning. To the north the beaches stretched forever.
To the south ....what's that I see.... another break water wall to walk along.
We drove down to Shelly Beach. It was peaceful with very few people. (looking south)
The gulls weren't shy.
A boat navigates the rocky beach.
There is that man again with the video camera.
He is trying to capture the restless water.
Walking around the rock pools, I was fascinated with the life .......
....and the colours under the water.
I wonder if a wave will wash over him.
I found why it is called Shelly Beach.
Then we followed the signs to the Holiday Park and moved into our new cabin. It was the best yet with two bedrooms, modern kitchen, big flat screen TV and a roomy bathroom. (I forgot to take pics of it) but we intend to return.
It is only a short walk from the cabin over the sand dune to the beach.....
... but watch where you walk.
The empty beach rolls out in front of you, it is exhilarating.
We walk up to a rocky outcrop and I sit and watch the waves....
....wishing that I didn't have to go home tomorrow .
On the way back I am intrigued with the crab holes that have a little road up to the hole.
As it was our last night on the road and we had run out of food to cook for dinner, we went to the a club to eat.
Now I know who ate the oysters from the wall in the last post.
The meal wasn't anything to get excited about, except that it was cheap, but we certainly had a top view from our table.
