After yesterday's day of waterfalls. We decided to have a day at the beach. The first beach we Went to was Binalong Bay. This was quite a popular beach with the locals (there were about 15 of them in 1Km of beach). the main attraction was the crystal azure sea breaking over powdery white sands. It Was easy to see why the area is rated so highly.
After facing the crowds at Binalong, we decided to head north to the Bay of fires. This was called this not because of the flaming red rock outcrops, but because the first settlers saw fires on the shore as they arrived. It also has the advantage that it is so large, and there are so many individual beaches that you are Virtually assured you own private beach. We were lucky enough to have an entire beach to ourselves (except for flipping sand flies). We spent the rest of the day lazing on the beach, or trying to swim in the freezing sea.
As the day ended and the temperature started to drop, we headed back to our YHA accommodation, stopping off on the way at an internet cafe to see if we had details of our World Cup ticket bids; we were unsuccessful. Bugger.
