A great weekend destination


Port Stephens, a small seaside resort located two hours north of Sydney, is in my opinion one of the most picturesque stretches of the coast of NSW. The climb to the top of Tomaree Head is a steep half-hour walk, but the reward is... THIS! Well worth the effort, don't you think?
Port Stephens, une petite station balnéaire située à deux heures de route au nord de Sydney, est à mon avis c'est un des plus jolis coins de la côte du NSW. Monter au sommet de Tomaree Head, c'est une bonne grimpette d'une demi-heure bien raide à pied, mais la récompense c'est ça ! Ca vaut l'effort, non ?

It's beautiful, tranquil, restful, and stunning. I've decided that I want to spend the rest of my life in a beach community.

Felicia said...

Picture postcard perfect! It is a gorgeous beach - the sand is so white! Hope the hike was as beautiful.

J'ai un visiteur régulier qui vient de NZ et il poste régulièrement ce genre de photos, très sauvages...
Je ne sous entends pas qu'il n'est pas nécessaire d'aller loin pour trouver ce qu'on a près de chez soi
au contraire. Partir permet de mieux profitter de ce qu'on a
J'aime partir. On n'est pas alors distrait par les tracasseries de tous les jours
On peut profiter de toutesles rencontres
Et surtout retrouver celui ou ceux qu'on aime

Alors Nathalie surtout profite de ton séjour sans arrière pensée et surtout surtout surtout ne te laisse pas polluer l'esprit par le monde du blog !

Exactly - and I can feel the sweat pouring off me! Actually I've always lived near the sea, so since coming to Zurich I've felt a little landlocked, Lakes are nice, but there's something different about going down to the ocean's shore. Thanks for reminding me

Yes! Did you go there for the weekend?

I am looking forward to some pleasant beach time in the distant future. Until then I will have to buy flowers and wear a jacket.
This photo is so nice... it takes me right to a calm place.

nothing clears the mind like walking in a baeautiful place, walking & climbing all the better-

and the view from the top???

d. chedwick bryant said...

I meant the view really clears one's head.

I think it looks so relaxing and beautiful. I can almost hear the waves crashing against the sand

Maxime said...

Une belle vue, mais pour se baigner, il y a encore une demi-heure de marche dans l'autre sens, non ?

Spica said...

C'est clair que ça donne envie !
