McIntyre Beach

Saturday 07/01/17

It was stinking hot on Saturday, with a top of 41C forecast. It was overcast and muggy. With a promise that a cool change would swing through later in the afternoon, we packed up Ruby and Pearl and headed for our favourite little beach camp spot at McIntyre Beach.

We nose Pearl into position using the front hitch, so much easier than backing her into position.

It was cooler here than back home but soooo much cooler down at the waters edge. Our Southern Ocean is very chilly! 🌊

Time for some refreshments. I have discovered Smirnoff Pure (vodka, lime and soda). Its a lovely drink, not too sweet like most mixed drinks, on a hot day.

The sky was so beautiful, cloud formation changing constantly...


Tangled nature...

Bri and Gus pitched her tent ⛺️...

Not sure what happened to this butterfly 🦋...

Bri was sitting cooling her toes when the sea came in...

That cooled her off! ☺

The sun in the clouds...

A stunnng sunset - I just couldn't capture the colours...

We ate barbecued chicken pieces with salad and finished off the evening with a mini Magnum icecream!

We had a few spits of rain later in the night so we packed up and called it a night. Next morning, we left nothing but tyre tracks...

We are so lucky to have this wonderful coastline accessable to us.

Cheers - Joolz xx


  1. Oh how I envy you being able to pack up and go camp at the beach. That is one of the things I miss so much about my childhood growing up in Hawaii. Right now I could go for some beach time. We have snow piled up outside her in Washington State and the temperatures are taking a nose dive yet again.

  2. Looks peaceful and very relaxing and great pictures of the cloud and sunset. We have done alot of camping over the years and love it.

  3. Looks beautiful! I can't wait to visit Australia one day.
