A day at the beach at Number 2 Rocks ...

We headed off at 11 am for the hour long drive through the sand dunes...

which lead us to Number 2 Rocks.
~
It is a beautiful horse-shoe shaped bay with a reef which lets the waves break, leaving the inner water calm and safe for swimming.
~
When we first got there, the girls explored along the shoreline, looking for small fish and crabs.
~
You can see the waves breaking on the rocks behind the girls. We listened to the thundering sea all day.
~
For lunch, we had lamb chops and beef sausages with various salads which we all shared. I think the Italian girls all enjoyed their lunch.
~
~
Here are two of the chefs - Angus & Ric
~
Sausages and lots of salad.
~
Our friends have kayaks so the girls had fun paddling about.
(Sally, Maddy & Brianna)
~
Beatrice, Chiara and Samantha.
~
A wave came in and gave Chiara a wet bottom!
~
They had lots of fun. We also set up a volley ball net and they played that also.
~
They spent time walking along the beach, drawing in the sand and looking in rock pools for crabs and star fish.

L-R : Brianna & Chiara, Sally & Maddy, Samantha and Beatrice.
~
In the late afternoon, it was time for some beach cricket. Beatrice was very good
at hitting the ball.
~
~
More waves crashing on rocks... soon it was time to pack up and head for home. On the way back we found a steep sand hill so the girls could try some sand-boarding.
~
They found it tiring, climbing to the top, sliding down then climbing to the top again and again!
~
It was funny to watch...
~
..sometimes they stayed on the boards...
~
... sometimes not!
~
~
Oops! Beatrice takes a tumble!
~
A beautiful sunset to finish the day...
~
We arrived home and had toasted ham and cheese sandwiches for dinner then showered to wash off all the sand (there is still lots in my house!). We all slept very well last night.
