Summer was coming to an end but it was still nice to visit the beach. My very best friend, Kerrie and her family invited Mum and me to spend a weekend at Culburra Beach with them. They had a "weekender" there, that is a a small house a bit like a big garage with lots of bunk beds for family and friends. Culburra is on the South Coast of NSW not far from the town of Nowra.
There was lots of fun things to do at this quiet isolated beach (It's not any more). There is a lake as well as a surf beach. We watched the water skiers but we didn't have a boat unfortunately as I would have loved to have a go. (I did a few years later)
However, we did have fun sand skiing/tobogganing in the sand dunes and
clambering over the rocks at the water's edge.
|Our mums enjoyed the sun and a break from work.|
|Sometimes we tried fishing in the lake.|
We enjoyed bush walking and just for something different we climbed the flagpole. (Oh to be that slim again.)
Best of all was surfing, but I preferred to take photos as the water was very cold. Kerrie , her niece and Mum had fun though.
This was a great weekend to cheer me up and get me back on track after a sad experience the previous year.
