Hoppin' along the coast!

I woke up early this morning at the Jervis Bay Guesthouse and went for a great 3.5 mile run on a path along the beach.  I saw three Laughing Kookaburra birds while out on my run.  Our hosts at the bed and breakfast made us a great breakfast, we packed up and stopped at the Booderee National Park.  We saw some more beautiful beaches.  These beaches are honestly some of the most beautiful we have ever seen.  One of the beaches we stopped at today, Hyams Beach, has the whitest sand in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. 

Our trip today to Gipsy Point took 5.5 hours.  We were both very ready to be at our accommodations for the night, but it was a great drive.  The scenery varied from sea views to pasture views and at several places the road was lined on either side with tall trees.  We were thrilled to see kangaroos in the wild for the first time today!  We saw one on our way out of Booderee Park just sitting at the side of the road and then we saw 17 standing around on a golf course.


  1. Wow! Such amazing pictures just in this one post! I'm so excited to come see you guys!!

  2. What beautiful white sand! It looks like fine sugar or salt.
