South Coast Snippets – 2

The ‘summer that wasn’t’ has officially ended, but I did manage to enjoy one week of summer on a recent trip to the South Coast. This time we spent a week relaxing in  Ulladulla/Mollymook and surrounding areas.

Ulladulla is a fishing port, 226kms south of Sydney. The town may be not the most glamorous coastal village but it certainly makes up for it in natural beauty.

Every day was near perfect summer weather, even an afternoon ‘southerly buster’ thrown in. Each morning we looked out to see the sunrise or in the north, glimpses of the sea through these fabulous trees. Throughout the day their trunks would change colour depending on the angle of the sun. They remind me of an artist’s impression of the tree.

Breakfast would have to wait until our morning walk, usually along Mollymook Beach.

I love the colour of this piece of sea lettuce washed up on the sand.The birds were enjoying the early morning as well!

All day could be spent on the beach. The temperature was perfect with a gentle breeze to keep it from being too hot. My favourite time is at low tide when the waves are the right size for me, especially at North Mollymook. The water temperature was perfect! But there is more to do at Ulladulla at low tide! More about that later.
