Winter Vacation Part Deux - The Beach

One of the nicest things we did on our holiday was rent a cottage in Hyams Beach for two days. It's a small village about two hours south of Sydney - I guess you can't even really call it a village - there is just one cafe/general store (which was very trendy - with amazing coffee!). Above are some old cottages on the main street of Hyams beach.
The cottage we rented was more modern, set back amongst the trees. It was very relaxing - lots of eating, drinking and flipping through the piles of Australian home decorating magazines a friend had lent me. We spent a bit of time at Iluka beach - it's a beautiful beach in a national park.
A huge expanse of white sand. And, for most of the time we were the only people there. Looking at these photos makes me wish I was back....

Sun, sand (and shopping!)...it all looks like so much fun! And so warm. Yep, I'm officially jealous. ;^) I'm glad you had such a good trip!

Were it not for the fact that I know how much you NEEDED this vacation, I would be super jealous of you sitting on that glorious beach. Who am I kidding? I'm super jealous of you sitting on that glorious beach (+ with good coffee too!).
