I'm back: 1st Installment
I'm back. The bags are unpacked, the house has been cleaned (it was in a pretty good state, thanks boys), two loads of washing are hanging on the line (not mine, I did mine at the cabin - my sons) and I have downloaded all my photos!!
What can I say - it was a relaxing break, - the accommodation was wonderful, (would recommend it to others), the walks the beach prefect and I have been connecting with nature (as you will see).
In this first installment of our holidays - I will share with you the accommodation we stayed in - "The Bower at Broulee" contains 6 cabins, all hidden amongst the trees so you couldn't see or hear your neighbours - very private (no children allowed) - in fact we didn't see anyone the whole time we where there. The picture below is the front of the cabin (ours was called the Red Bower) and the next photo is the back of the cabin with a lovely large deck.
Below is the view from the kitchen window looking out the back of the cabin - isn't it a wonderful view. The cabin contained all the mod-cons, including fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV, DVD, CD (with speakers in every room including the bathroom!), spa (very nice and big), king size bed (very soft), wood fire (which would be perfect for winter), leather couches and big sliding doors and windows to let in nature (and a few mozzies). The next photo is the view from the back deck - it was dense forest that you couldn't walk through but beautiful to look at.
Notice the birds stilling on the bar - these are Kookaburras and I will tell you more about them in another post. All I will say is that nature came to us, we didn't need to go looking for it.
Relaxing on the lawn at the back of the cabin. It was very cool in this spot, perfect after a walk along the beach (which was quite hot on the way back).
We went on a couple of walks in the forest around the cabin - one on the first evening we arrived (first photo below) - it was at dusk and the mozzies were out and about so we didn't walk very far (I was being bitten) - and I didn't want to get lost as our mobile phones didn't work in the dense scrub.
The next 2 photos were taken on a walk the following day - it was very pretty and quite cool walking under the shade of the trees. No nasty snakes jumped out at us - nor anything else. Too dense for kangaroos and the birds were all resting.
