weekend edition: jervis bay

Callala Beach

Wishing everyone a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy and awesome New Year! I’m sitting here in disbelief, almost refusing to face the fact that we are in 2015…but simultaneously I’m thinking ‘woah…about TIME’.

Just like what everyone says at the end of each year – time flies. Its true. The last week or so of 2014 was spent  on the South Coast of NSW where I wished I could chill carefree. But before we knew it, time was up. This was just our little adventure:

On Boxing Day, my family and I took a road trip down the South Coast of NSW to the Jervis Bay territory. Three hours or so from Sydney (or four hours if I’m driving), Jervis Bay is an area known for its breathtaking beaches. Our high anticipation for our little family getaway, built up by our imaginations and Google images, was exceeded when we got there. We spent the last four days immersed in nature, encountering kangaroos, crabs, schools of fish, a baby stingray and dolphins. We basked in the sun, getting sand in places you can only imagine, beach-hopped and explored. Our days were spent adventuring in Huskisson and its nearby lakes, Hyams Beach, Callala Beach, Cave Beach and Fairy Meadow Beach. I’ve returned darker than I have ever been, developed strange tan lines here and there and brought sand from each beach home but it was all worth it.

Our bush trail to Callala Beach

We stayed in Callala Beach. Our blue and not-so-little cottage was a 10-minute walk to the beach and at least a 20 minute drive to everything else…that is, civilisation. Being 21st century born and bred, everyone’s first question when they arrived at the house was: Is there WiFi? Is there reception? Both answers were no. This, despite how distressing it may sound, allowed us a break from the cyber world to simply relax. Callala Beach really did take the word ‘getaway’ to a whole new level.

I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end the year of 2014. Enjoy the photographs 🙂
