WHEN PLANNING THE VT MEET, OBVIOUSLY THE BLUE MOUNTAINS
WAS FIRST ON THE LIST OF THINGS TO DO. HOWEVER I ALSO WANTED
TO INCORPORATE AN OFF THE BEATEN PATH PLACE. SOMETHING
DIFFERENT THAT OUR OVERSEAS VISITORS WOULD ENJOY.

CENTRAL COAST

HUBBY AND I BOUGHT OUR FIRST HOUSE MANY MOONS AGO IN
KINCUMBER ON THE CENTRAL COAST. SO IT WAS WITHOUT
HESITATION THAT I CHOSE THE CENTRAL COAST, 1 1/2HRS FROM
SYDNEY AS OUR OFF THE BEATEN PATH DESTINATION.

WE HAD A QUICK STRETCH THE LEGS STOP AT THE FABULOUS
HAWKESBURY RIVER. I NEVER TIRED OF THIS LOVELY SCENIC
PLACE WHEN TRAVELLING EVERY DAY ON THE TRAIN TO SYDNEY
TO AND FROM WORK.

HARDYS BAY CLUB

LUNCH WAS SOMEWHERE DIFFERENT. HARDYS BAY IS A PRETTY
LITTLE SPOT TUCKED AWAY ON THE SOUTHERN BEACHSIDE OF THE
CENTRAL COAST. IF YOU LOOK ACROSS THE BAY YOU WILL SEE
SYDNEY NORTHERN BEACHES IN THE DISTANCE ACROSS FROM THE
MOUTH OF THE HAWKESBURY RIVER.

VIEW OVER THE BRISBANE WATER HEADING OVER TO HARDYS BAY.
YOU CAN CATCH A FERRY FROM GOSFORD WHICH IS THE MAIN CITY
OF THE CENTRAL COAST TO ETTALONG BEACH HERE. A LOT OF
PEOPLE DO TO VISIT THE WEEKEND MARKETS.
