Bateman’s Bay ~ Part 1

So we had a wee road trip to Bateman’s Bay last week. I needed a bit more than a normal weekend off work, so I took a few days’ leave and enjoyed a nice four day weekend 💕 We only stayed one night but we had a few stops along the way, there and back, and came back with PLENTY of photos! Here is the first installment  😉

WK010001
After popping in to see Mum And Dad for a chat and coffee, our ‘first’ stop was Berry. For breakfast, and a stroll through the lovely village 😊
WK010002
And THIS was breakfast! SO GOOD!! I totally recommend the Milkwood Bakery for a delicious meal, and the coffee was YUM! 
WK010003
If we hadn’t stopped at the Milkwood Bakery, this may very well have been the spot for breakfast, as it looked very inviting indeed! 
WK010004
This entrance to a restaurant grabbed my attention…
WK010005
One of the many knickknack shops in Berry.
WK010006
Lots of cafés here too! 
WK010007
Our second stop was Vincentia, near Huskisson. We took a little detour for this as I felt like seeing the ocean (and I hadn’t been to the area before). This was Collingwood Beach. It did not disappoint 👌😊
WK010008
And our gorgeous girl Bella enjoyed it too! Her first time at the beach! (She did not have the best life before we took her on, but now she gets to do a lot of ‘firsts’) 😊
WK010009
The water was so lovely…
WK010010
Tide in…
WK010011
…tide out.
WK010012
One last look as we hit the road again!

Next stop, Milton! See you soon for the second installment!

It was a calm ocean…
WK009006
…just small ripples.
WK009007
