Others preferred to sit back and relax.
The kangaroos at Diamond Head camp ground seemed like permanent residents. They were out in force in the morning when we got up. What was surprising was they stuck around all day. At lunch time they were still grazing away.
One last glimpse of the beach before we head in for the night.
We loved the headline, with its gap. It was truly beautiful in the golden light.
On top of the sand, we could see evidence of very industrious creatures, burrowing below the surface. Are they worms or crabs, or something else?
The rocks and lichen have an ethereal look to them in the glow of sunset.
A lone surfer ploughs through the waves. They weren’t big that evening, but I’m sure he enjoyed himself anyway.
It was a beautiful evening on Dunbogan Beach. Being early September, we had it almost all to ourselves.
In the distance you can see North Brother mountain, which is right behind Laurieton. It’s pretty much all national park from our end of the beach to the other.
After setting up, we headed down to the beach to watch the sunset.
We’re back on the East Coast, on the second part of our honeymoon – camping at Crowdy Bay. Crowdy Bay is in between Taree and Laurieton on the the Mid North Coast. We camped at the Diamond Head campsite, the biggest camp site, which is barely 15 minutes south of Laurieton. The locals certainly gave us a welcome when we arrived late afternoon.
