Wanderlust Home and Pet Care
August 31: The tourist office told us to drive to the Boneyard at Bambo Beach. We had a great walk along the beach then on to Minnamurra Point for another walk to see the Minnamurra River flow into the ocean. We picked up the Grand Pacific Drive which then took us to Shellharbour and another walkabout. The GPS kept trying to get us back on the Princess Highway which we ignored. Good thing the sound was off so we didn’t have to hear “recalculating”. The drive took us through every sea side town. I can’t get over the number of beaches and how beautiful they are.
We arrived at Christine’s and Peter’s House. They arranged to go to the gambling club for dinner and the “Meat Raffle”. I paid $10 to enter. OMG, one of my numbers was called. Peter grabbed my hand and took me up front to check in. I could either select a meat package or I choose from card one two or three and take whatever money was behind the card. I choose #3 and WON $300. Can you believe that?
August 30: First thing this morning we walked to the Culburra Beach. You can hear the surf from the front door. This is a cute suburb of Jervis Bay, I would recommend to anyone. We then hopped into the car and drove north to the Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk. The tree top walk is 1,548 feet long and an average height of 82 feet. Gary went up the Knights Tower 147 feet high. I was too chicken of the outside staircase. I still could see all the way to the Tasman Sea. We had a big lunch at a restaurant looking a the harbor of Kiama, walked to the Kiama lighthouse and blow hole. Mother nature forgot to turn on the rough seas so NO Blow.
August 29: We slept in an apartment I found on AirBnB.com. Margaret has been a wonderful host. She is originally from Cyprus! We had a welcome basket with wine, fresh fruit (enough for two breakfasts) and she took us on a tour of Culburra Beach. We saw 4 dolphins from Penguin Head and several pelicans as large as a 6 year old. We went with her suggestion to visit Huskisson. The visitor office was most helpful: Plantation Point (saw another 2 dolphin); Booderee National Park to see Murrays Beach, St George Lighthouse, and Moes Rock; Point Perpendicular and it’s lighthouse and Honeymoon Bay. It was a full day of sightseeing.
