Kiama to Moruya, NSW

A storm struck Kiama shortly after midnight with strong winds rocking the caravan and belting rain. I was laying awake thinking about the morning's drive. I was even planning on extending our stay at Kiama for an extra day. However, by morning the wind and rain had eased by a large margin, we decided to pack and leave after breakfast. A drizzly rain set in just as we were hitching the van. By the time we left the Kiama city boundary the rain was falling heavily once more. The rain continued unabated until we arrived at Ulladulla where the day fined up once more. We shopped at Aldi and had lunch by The Ulladulla Sea Pool. We thought it was very cool but there were people swimming, brrrrrrr. After a pleasant drive south through Batemans Bay we pulled up for the night at Waldrons Swamp Rest Area, only 20 km south of Batemans Bay. Now the Title might put one off, but the RA was quite good. We also had 4 other vehicles camping with us.

We were trying to meet up with Colin and Rita at Broulee (pronounced brow-lee) but we missed them. We continued on to Moruya and tried meeting up with Bob and Christine but missed them as well. Not a good day for catching up with travel acquaintances.

Getting hungry by now, so set the GPS for Bodalla Park Forrest Rest Area, only 32 km from Moruya. Where I am compiling this Blog Post.

Waldrons Swamp RA. After a great sleep the day dawned clear and sunny.

Broulee North Beach, plenty of Surfers here but not much wave action for them.

There was a great Market on this Saturday at Moruya. We were able to buy a yummy French Rye and Malt Loaf, we devoured half of it for lunch.

Our bush camp site at Bodalla Park Forrest RA.

This area was last logged in 1998. There are many straight and tall trees here now.
