BENDALONG 3: BENDALONG BEACH

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness. 

 Mother Teresa


Last week P:-) and I spent a few days camping at Bendalong at the Rustic Caravan Park.




On Thursday we took a short drive into the town of Bendalong to visit the one small general store to get a few supplies. P:-)'s eldest son works for the Red Cross and was down at Moruya for work. He was going to drive up for dinner. We ended up having toasted tuna and cheese sandwiches, fruit salad and custard, finishing off with coffee and some very nice cakes that M brought with him. It was lovely to spend a couple of hours with him in the still evening, eating a drinking (Pepsi Max and coffee) outside our caravan.

While we were at Bendalong we visited the beach.




When we returned to the Rustic Caravan Park we took a walk though the park. Most of it consists of permanent vans. Many of these are quite big structures. The place is almost like a little village of strange little houses built of all sorts of bits and pieces and usually built around a caravan.












Some of the residences were fascinating.



This bird came into our camp a few times. It was very difficult to photograph as it didn't stay still for long.


Unfortunately the colours in this photo are a bit pale. It had quite a blue tail and head and was about the size of an Indian Myna. It was very pretty but I have been unable to identify it in Neville Cayley's What Bird Is That? If you recognise it you might like to let me know what it is in the comments.


All too soon it was time to go home. One of the chooks that roamed around the park came to give us a hand packing up.





We shall definitely return here.
