Bega, Bermagui and Back
Recently, we changed things up and drove to Bega to buy a mop. We don’t have a Big W here and they were on special, so I half jokingly suggested we go get one and James surprisingly agreed.
We piled in the car and drove down the coast.
We lunched on the Fishermens Wharf in Bermagui after fish spotting off the side of the wharf itself, eating delicious fish and chips and enjoying the gorgeous views.
James then took us to Blue Pool, a simply stunning natural pool cut into the base of the rocky cliff. Had I known about this place during the summer months, we certainly would have been visiting.
We made our way down the steps, which was no problem on the way down but a completely different story on the way back – they were much steeper than we realised and had most certainly multiplied while we were down the bottom. The kids paddled in the smaller pool before exploring the surrounding rock pools and finding crabs.
We continued south on our mop finding mission and returned home in the evening. We may have technically spent most of the day traveling but we were all much happier and relaxed for taking our time, exploring and doing something different to what we would normally do.
It’s been so easy to slip into a routine of school, activities and not much branching out during the term and taking this trip was so refreshing. I’m promising myself we will do more changing it up and more exploring of the beautiful places closer to home.
I even saw my first Echidna crossing the road. Cute little fellow.
Do you change things up often?
Tell me one place I absolutely must take my family to?
