The Roadtrip Diaries – The end of the beginning…

Our last day of The Roadtrip Diaries project started with an early morning hike down to treachery.

The Frenchies got wet and surfed, while we enjoyed being immersed in the yellow, blue and green contrast of nature that surrounded us.

We took to the road headed for our final destination Catherine Hill Bay.

A bush fire had just recently ripped through Catherine Hill Bay destroying everything in its path, even the historic pier was damaged. We made our way down a trail through a post apocalyptic scene before arriving at a cliff appropriately named “spinal tap” the idea is to run and jump out off the 25 m cliff to avoid hitting the rocks below. Everyone seemed hesitant at first but it was only a matter of time before one of us took it on with everyone following.

The last experience we would share together was exactly how it started. A BBQ in a scenic location with good wine (thanks Cock+ Bull!) good friends and a mesmerizing sunset.

The Roadtrip Diaries – Something bigger than us…

Another early rise, this time for a Dorrigo sunrise. In this moment, we felt connected to something that words cannot describe something that is bigger than everything that ever was or will ever be.

After we arose feeling  fresh, we decided to take a hike following our way around a headland.

We arrived in an open coastal field where we were taken back by the natural spectacle of big waves pounding the sheer cliff faces showered by the falling sun and it’s golden light.

What must our travellers be feeling in this moment? unplanned, unexpected and totally living the moment .

Later that evening we all sat around the campfire and enjoyed some beers and music with good friends.
