Those of you who read Time Away would know of my present location at a holiday spot of the NSW Mid-North Coast known as Tea Gardens-Hawks Nest.
At the risk of turning this blog into a travelblog, I have included a few photos to show what a magnificent place this is:
This is the view from our second storey apaprtment, which looks directly out over the main surfing area of bennett’s beach.. You will agree it’s a very pleasant sight to wake up to each morning.
This is the southern view from Bennett’s Beach, with Yacabaa Headland in the background. Yacabaa is the northern headland covering the entrance to Port Stephens and Nelson Bay.
Another southern view looking a little more out to sea, this time showing Cabbage Tree and Boondelbah Islands.
A “scoop” of pelicans settling in for the evening on one of the Tea Gardens wharves, after a particularly blustery afternoon.
A closer view of The Singing Bridge which joins Tea gardens to Hawks Nest, so named for the whistling sound that occurs when strong winds blow.
The Tea Gardens War Memorial Park. The park has a little interactive facility giving an overview of Australia’s commitment to past conflicts. The flag is at half-mast in remembrance of the five Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan recently. Lest We Forget.
