Get away without the toothbrush
With a full tank, the sunroof back and windows wide open, my tween son and I drove the Pacific Highway, across the Harbour Bridge, via a friends place, heading for a place to unwind and to feel a sense of holiday, even though a few hours was all we had on our agenda.
The Watson's Bay area truly is a jewel. Morning, noon, dusk and night, it is impossible not to be inspired.
We were lucky with parking, though a ferry from Circular Quay is probably a better way to travel, provided you have time on your hands or alternatively, come for a sunrise!
We arrived around 4pm, the sun was out and the weather was a perfect 29C. With mother nature on our side we explored the South Head Heritage Coastal Walk and how magnificent it was. There is absolutely no way that if one lives in this beautiful city that this walk should go undiscovered. The coast line is one long continuous of pristine blue, a shore line full of ragged character and one to be photographed, painted and importantly, stored to memory.
The walk is a circuit and is a very easy pace, though it isn't wheel chair friendly as there are steps to climb, though not very many. However, Camp Cove Beach is where the walk starts, and it is accessible to all. So anyone on crutches or wheels or out of puff, can have a relax with another beautiful scene to behold and a kiosk selling most things for everyones satisfaction and tables & chairs if the sand tends to leave your toes feeling gritty!
