Leaving Berry, we headed for BCF in Nowra to refill a gas bottle and purchase a camping clothesline. We packed a collapsible clothes-airer when we left home and it has served us well in the warm weather, but with the rain and cold the clothes don’t dry as quick and we need some more line space (which isn’t always available in the caravan parks, showgrounds and free camping you must provide your own clothes lines.
That done we left Nowra along the Princes Highway heading south to our next stop, North Heads Primitive Campground on the coast at Moruya. For most of the journey we were surrounded by State Forest or National Park; Conjola National Park, Meroo National Park, and Boyne State Forest all of which were interspersed with pastures of grazing horses and cattle. We passed through the towns of Milton, Ulladulla, which has a small picturesque boat harbour, Lake Tambourine and Batemans Bay located on the Clyde River where we stopped for lunch.
Then Mogo, a small town with many arts and crafts shops, Broulee and then Moruya.
The campgrounds are located by the beach, across the road from the Moruya Airport (small planes only) and so far have not bothered us at all. We picked or spot, setup camp then went walking along the beach and river mouth.
There is so many river mouth campsites and caravan parks along the east coast and all are very nice, so far.
Today (Thursday) the weather is yuk, grey clouds, non-stop rain with the forecast of strong winds, cold temperatures and snow fall on the mountains and in the southern highlands this evening and tomorrow. We have stayed warm and dry in van ALL day, Derick reading, and me blogging, cooking a fruit cake and catching up with emails.
