NSW Central Coast Photographer – Camping with Kids

Last weekend we had the most amazing 2 nights camping on the Colo River with some friends. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful 3 days of stepping away from all technology and really being present with our kids. I must admit, I’m usually one that spends way too much time checking my phone messages, instagram or Facebook so being removed from all of those did wonders for my soul. We spent the days floating along the river on inflatable rings, exploring the river or just sitting on the sand and watching the children play. The campsite was fully booked but you wouldn’t know it with plenty of room for everyone. We rode our bikes every morning up to the road and past some lovely farms, spotting 2 lyrebirds, a few kangaroos and many horses and cows. We were even lucky enough to have a Koala in residence at the campsite sleeping up high in a tree. The kids had a ball and are already looking forward to the next camping trip – who doesn’t like toasting marshmallows on a campfire? Our girls loved the freedom of having their own tent to sleep in, getting dirty and having no plans. It really is a top holiday, even if only for a couple of nights.

NSW Central Coast Photographer – Visit the Manning Valley

Our Easter weekend was spent relaxing and visiting our beautiful Aunt who lives in Taree. As usual our two little fish spent a lot of time in the pool and playing with Aunty Jenny’s 3 friendly dogs. We took a day trip to Tapin Tops National Park to visit Potoroo Falls. The water was icy cold but it didn’t stop us jumping off the rocks into the deep pool below the waterfall. It was a perfect weekend to recharge and dust off the camera. I’m already looking forward to going back again in a few months time.

The next Avoca Beachside Market will be held at Heazlett Park Foreshore, Avoca on Sunday, 28 Febraury 2016 from 9am – 2pm. There are so many amazing stalls to wander around from homewares, jewellery, skincare and clothing to delicious food and local musicians to entertain you.
