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 – Exploring caves, sandboarding, fishing & magical sunset!

Hey guys you want to go explore a sea cave? A few puzzled looks but the group agrees.

We make out way down a steep, slippery goat track down to the rocks below. The tide was too high to enter via the main entrance so we opt for the backdoor..The travellers look at a narrow passage and question whether or not this is a good idea but are assured that  it’s safe. The guide enters and the travellers follow.

This is something you would never think of to do or be able to find that’s why it’s always best to travel with a local when you’re in another country.

After getting dirty climbing through the sea cave we took the road again stopping in Forster for lunch, we shared some cock + bull by the river.
