Lunch down by the beach

Our holiday in New South Wales

September 2007

After our walk in the Royal National Park just south of Sydney, we drove on through the park for about half an hour. We were looking for a good spot to stop for lunch. On the map I had it showed a picnic ground at the beach at a locality called Wattamoola. We had never been there so we headed there to find a lovely spot on the headland overlooking the river estuary and the beach.

While we were having a very pleasant lunch my memory was jogged. I seemed to remember coming here after all, but a very long time ago. I seem to remember our children playing in the sand at this point. They are now adults. I must have been sometime in the mid-1970s. The memory cells are a little rusty. Somewhere I might even have an old photo or two.

Great place for a picnic. Or a swim. Or just to while away the hours on the beach.

We decided that the next time we come to Sydney we need to spend more time in this area, not just drive through it over about three hours.
