Coast drive South

Beautiful beaches

After a day of just laying about at the beach and the pool, we decided to head down the coast. It was a nice drive that allowed us to stop ad different beaches along the way. Each were beautiful and open.

One of the neater things about Austrailian beaches is the lifeguards are formed as clubs and they in turn watch the bathers. The lifeguards will asses the currents and conditions and will put out a pair of flags on the beach that shows where it is safe to enjoy the water. Further north there was a threat of jellyfish. Here, further south there didn't seem to be so much of an issue.

As we slowly cruised the coastal route we passed some smaller towns including one called Kendal. Since it is the namesake of one of our daughters we had to drop in. It wasn't much of a place but it was fun to explore new towns nonetheless.

As the coast route brought us back to the Coast Highway we headed back. The 3 hour drive took us about 30km down the road.
