DAY TWO AT SANCTUARY POINT

Great acts are made up of small deeds.
Lao Tzu

Merry Christmas

 Today P:-) and I decided to investigate the Booderee National Park, on the shore of Jervis Bay. First we went to Green Patch and walked down to the beach which had very white sand.

Then we drove a little further around the bay to Murray's beach

We continued on our way to the Boodoree Botanic Gardens. These are gardens of native plants. It was a little disappointing in that there weren't many flowers as we had missed the main blooms of spring.

Meanwhile back at the caravan park
The hibiscus below is of course not a native, but was taken at the caravan park. It was so pretty it seemed worth inclusion.

There were lots of noisy birds in the trees - rosellas and lorikeets, but they rarely flew close enough to photograph. Below is a lone magpie which was quite brave amd kept coming back to our camp.
