06/11/2007 – 06/13/2007 Sydney… Not so much

So it’s been a while since we’ve last updated so we’ll try to crank out what we’ve done since our last blog.So you know were not big city people, so after one night back in Sydney, we decided to go on a spur of the moment trip down the coast to a place we’ve heard of called “Seven Mile Beach”. We went to the train station and rode south for about 2 hours, when we got off in some town; we didn’t know where to go from there. It was basically a train stop in the middle of farm land. We saw another couple headed some where so we decided to follow them. But with our packs on we weren’t fast enough so we soon lost them. We eventually went into a town that had signs for “Seven Mile Beach.” After loading up on food we made our journey in that direction. When we found the camp after a three mile trek at night it was only us and other couple who was staying at the “Holiday Park.”

The next day we went for a walk on the beach which was beautiful, hung out at the campsite, when on a walk to a small store, played in quick sand and enjoyed the views. We had to get up early the next day to try and catch the train out of the town back to Sydney. So we made a quick dinner and went to bed. The next morning we were running a little late to get to the train. We had to walk 3 miles in 30 minutes with our heavy packs on… needless to say we didn’t make the 9:00 train. After we had breakfast in town, we began walking to catch the next train and on the way we were offered a ride by a lady. So she took us to the next train station down the line. We had and hour to kill so we checked out around that town and found a blow hole and beautiful view of the ocean.

We rode back into Sydney on the train. It was a quick little side trip that we had a lot of fun on. We got to see a different side of Australia so that was fun. The area we stayed was very quiet and peaceful, we lucked out because the “HolidayPark” looked like it could be a very busy place in an Australian Summer.

    What the heck is up with that sign? Is that the opposite of “children crossing”…so it’s “elderly crossing”? Or the PC term “Aged”? They should make the little woman in the sign all hunched over holding a cane. Oh, and the guy guiding her needs a beating stick.

    You know I am not totally serious, not totally.

    Ocean and countryside look equally beautiful! Who’s your new friend with the big ears?
