We took a longer long weekend down by the sea, heading south past Kiama, Nowra, Jervis Bay, to the north-side of Lake Conjola. The village of Manyana, to be exact. It really is just a village of beach houses – it doesn’t even have a general store. What it does have are beaches. Manyana beach is a mile length of sand, with Green Island connected by a sand bar.
Despite all the beach houses, the village was surrounded by bush and water. Bridie Beagle, a great lover of beaches, was ecstatic to be roaming again by the sea. And so were we.
