Next up was a quick stop to Newcastle, NSW for a pitstop. We had originally planned to stay a bit longer here but the husband was dying for a surf at Port Macquarie so we pressed on. We headed towards Coffs harbour (where we saw our first 'big' object. This time the banana.) and headed towards Port Macquarie so Alex could relive his youth of surfing here when had visited before.
It was turning out to be a very hot day… one of those days where you can not escape the heat unless you are in the sea. We saw on the map 'Smokey Cape' and headed for it. Luckily we managed to find it as we ended up spending a whole afternoon there having a beach day and having some much needed rest. The water was SO warm, and so turquoise. We even saw Kangaroo's on the beach! A truly Australian experience. It was a little bit of heaven. It had a beautiful lighthouse with the most amazing look out point seeing stretches of white sandy beaches for miles.
