As it turns out this is our last stop before heading back to Brisbane. The weather in Eden had turned rather chilly with two nights of brisk winds.
On the way up from Eden we diverted into Ben Boyd NP and took in the Pinnacles Rock formation. White sandstone, weathered as pinnacles, underline harder ironstones. Quite a spectacular formation and very colourful with the green bush surrounding it. Cloudy day, so no blue sky! But then no shadows to aggravate the photographer!
Here in Tathra we have had some warm and sunny days. No use for the track pants and tops we bought in Eden! The beach is really inviting here with wide sand shores and a smooth surf. Bit cold so the Camping ground heated pool was the best option for a dip.
We have had a trip out to Bega to check out the Bega Heritage Cheese Centre and of course the cheese. Tasted the cheeses, many of which you can buy in Coles or Woolies. There was a rather good 3 year aged ‘Heritage’ cheddar, only available at the Centre. We added a block to the fridge. On the way back to Tathra a short tour of the Bega township revealed some nice old homes sitting high on hills overlooking the Bega Valley.
In the Mimosa Rocks NP we checked out a couple of NP basic camping sites for a later trip (have to twist Homealones arm). Ran into a couple of big goannas sunning themselves.
Back at Tathra Allthego dropped a line in the Bega River, near the sea outlet, and managed to land a modest sized flathead and trevally which were consumed for dinner on our last night.
Lunch at the Tathra Hotel offered some great pub food a view over the ocean, a whale appeared on the horizon and could be seen from the Hotel window saying goodby.
Well that is all now for this trip. Will be back in Brisbane in 4 or 5 days time.
