Camping at Jervis Bay

This past weekend I went down to Jervis Bay with Tim. If any of you have been in contact with my mother I'm sure you know all about him :-P We left Friday night after work and got there about 10:30 pm. Putting up a tent in the dark wasn't exactly ideal but we did manage to get it standing! We probably would have been screwed if it rained but it did stay up. Once we had the tent up we had a few beers and checked out the stars which were amazing, just like being up north back home. After freezing through the night we got up and checked out the beach during the day - so gorgeous! Bright white beaches and clear blue water, the sun was finally out after weeks of rain. We went swimming and layed in the sun for a while then checked out some beaches near by, it's all in a national park. We tried to get to one by walking but at one point we had to walk up over a hill to get around and as soon as we peaked over the top we were greeted by a man and woman in uniform asking for ID. Apparently we'd stumbled on the Australian Navy base, whoops! It rained Sunday so we left early and took the scenic way home, definitely a nicer drive. Overall it was an awesome weekend, one of the hidden gems of Oz.
