Camping at Little Beach

This past weekend I went camping with Tim and a group of his friends from work. There were 16 of us altogether and the campsite was really small so we pretty much had it all to ourselves. It's called Little Beach (fitting name!) and its about an hour and a half north of Sydney. Tim, me and his friend Vicky went up on the Friday night after they finished work and then the rest joined Saturday morning/afternoon. The weather forecast said it would be cloudy and rainy all weekend but we had awesome weather, sunny all day and only cloudy at night or in the morning. We all had pretty bad burns after Saturday (I know, boo frickin hoo right?) but luckily I brought aloe vera cream.I finally went swimming in the ocean for the first time since I've been back. It's still pretty cold but felt good after being in the sun all day. We saw a lot of wildlife while we were there too. There were tons of birds, including kookaburras, a porcupine (the Australian version, pretty much looks the same though), snakes and bugs (ew!) and a whale on the last day! For those who didn't know I am deathly afraid of whales so I wasn't too pumped to see it but I can appreciate that everyone else was. The kookaburras were so aggressive! They swooped down and took a piece of steak right off someones plate!! And while we were packing up I noticed a massive spider on Vicky's bag and as we screamed, obviously, a kookaburra swooped down again and ate the spider!! So crazy. It was nice to get out of the city for a bit and we all had a really good time and met some new people! Here are some shots from the trip.

In case you don't know what a kookaburra is, scary things!
