Coastal Stroll – Part 3

We finally reach our (well, my parents’) destination – two lookouts that overlook Broken Bay. You might have seen these before, but it’s my first time here.

The first lookout overlooks Pearl Beach and millionaire’s row.

I preferred the second lookout, which has views of the Central Coast Peninsula…

And Lion Island to Barrenjoey Head.

But I wasn’t exactly enjoying the view, more the scents.

Coastal Stroll – Part 1

Hi everyone, it’s Bridie Beagle here. It’s been a long time between bones but I’m back to take you on a short stroll. As you know, I love going for walks, especially in new places. I love to sniff out every nook and cranny. In this series, Daddy and I (and Mummy) are taking a stroll at Mount Ettalong, a hill between Umina Beach and Pearl Beach on the Central Coast.

What did we see? You have to wait until tomorrow to find out!

Coastal Notes – Pearl Beach

Being from the south side of Sydney, the Central Coast was always a little far to go to, and my exploration of the area was limited to its northern reaches (Kincumber, Terrigal, Avoca, The Entrance). Now I’m exploring its southern reaches, with its quiet inlets and spectacular views of Broken Bay. A great example of this is the village of Pearl Beach.

You can see Lion’s Head, and behind that, Barrenjoey Head, with Palm Beach on the other side of this. Very picturesque, even on an overcast day.
