The ocean beaches of Northern NSW are the most beautiful I have seen.
The broad sweep of sand
The rolling blue ocean
Town beaches like Byron Bay (above) and Yamba (below)
The beautiful lighthouses on the capes
Sentinels for the sailors as sea.
But its the quiet,
The largely deserted
The hard to get to beaches on the coast that I love
Ah you have to search for your own tranquillity!!!!
Where the surf pounds in
And the you can stand alone on the sandy beaches.
With a sea eagle circling overhead as a companion.
Set up the little tent
And at night be bedazzled by the Milky Way.
But the Pacific isn’t always peaceful
It doesn’t always contain its power
The a big swell expoding against the south wall at Coff Harbour a testament to the power of the sea.
It was beautiful spending the last of a mild Autumn on the NSW North Coast.
But the southern hemisphere winter is here and the temperatures are falling.
I’m sitting with my friend in South East Queensland
Tomorrow its time to head back north to the tropics.
Towards the start of the Savannah Way and the ride across the tropical North of Australia.
