Xmas 2010 - Pretty Beach


 Apologies for the innundation of posts lately, but so much has been happening. To make up for it, i'm going to do a giveaway shortly (well, three giveaways). Just need to get a decent camera to take photos...
Pretty Beach, Xmas 2010


Cowboy and I finally managed to get away for a week, and we stayed in some amazing cabins at Pretty Beach (between Ulladulla and Batemans Bay). The cabins are managed by the State Parks - we had pretty low expectations but were blown away! Espresso maker, new fridge, plasma TV, microwave!

(red vintage style bathers from PinUp Girl Clothing. Cowboy's shorts by me!)

The weather was quite odd for Summer, really hot one day and then blowing a gale the next. It stormed so bad on the second night we were here some people's tents blew down. We were safe inside our cabin, with a glass of red wine and a DVD.

We spent most of the time walking along the beach, bush tracks or rock pools (Cowboy has numerous photos of me bending over looking at things - gee thanks!). There were some Aboriginal middens that we wanted to check out, but after nearly stepping on a snake on the way there we decided to give it a miss.

Forties style head scarf saved me from bad hair days - I left my hair straightener at home! Fail.

Oh and stumbled across an amazingly cheap op-shop in Batemans Bay (Cowboy scored a wool black and red uniform for dirt cheap)

(this sign is on the way to Batemans Bay, I asked Cowboy to look 'mean')


Holiday round up - one of the best i've had! I'd really love to go back down there, its a lovely area and i'd recommend the cabins as a place to stay. Cowboy is a great travelling partner, i'd rate her 4 stars David ;).
