My family were off to Jervis Bay for a week last week. It is a 2.5-3 hour drive from Sydney CBD. We intended to do it a week after the normal Christmas break so as not to be with the traffic. It will be very busy during that season so we decided to move our “vacation” a week after.
We rented a house in Hyams Real Estate website and looked for a suitable one for us. We thought that we would be a group of 2-3 families but with some reasons that didn’t happen. Well, at least we were able to secure a place where we all sleep in a bed. Well, their sofa set is somehow a day bed so the house can actually accumulate up to 12 pax. We stayed at Silver Strand circle. You can check it out here: 6 Silver Strand Circle Chill Out.
To cut the story, I will just show you some of the pictures we took during this vacation. A little description might help too, I guess.
This is the closest beach in our location, just steps away. This is where we spent the most of our time. It is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the whitest sand in the world. And I can attest, it is really white and very fine.
We went to see some places around the area on our second day. Went to some rock formations and the old lighthouse. We stayed in the beach for a couple of hours as well.
We didn’t really stayed here. My uncle just took a photo on our way to Tilba.
Tilba & Mogo
On our third day, we went out and had a break from swimming. We went all the way to Tilba, about 2 hours away from Hyams Beach. It’s a long drive going there as if we’re going back to Sydney.
Anyway, we left around 10am and arrived by midday. We had lunch at one of the bakeshops in Tilba and ate some pies. We went from shop to shop and left to go to Mogo.
Mogo is a small town an hour away from Hyams. So we decided to go there on our way back from Tilba to Hyams. Again, we just checked the shops and went home.
We spent the rest of the week at Hyams and just chilled. I got burnt when we stayed for 2 hours in the afternoon sun. I forgot to put on two layers of sunscreen. Speaking of, make sure that you pack enough stuff that offers protection from the sun or else you’re doomed. Hahaha! Make sure you bring after sun spray too and take a shower after sun bathing and being soaked in the sun. This is the time when you need some extra tender loving care for your skin especially your face. A facial wash the gives you some deep cleansing is helpful. You also have to hydrate and moisturise your face and possibly your body after washing. We are all red and tanned by the end of the week and we all need to take care of our skin.
It was a relaxing week for everyone and will be looking forward to our next adventure.
