Holidays end :-(

After a week here, we are heading home tomorrow :-(.
It is a lovely place and not too far from home. 
We discovered the van park is missing a camp kitchen on the van side of the park. The only camp kitchen - and it is great - is on the far side in the tent section. We only realised this when we wanted to wash our big electric frypan in the camp kitchen. Our van sink is not big enough.

After all the massive waves we've had this week, we were not surprised to find the waves had deposited all the stones, shells and broken coral.

Each day I came down to the beach and the 'danger' sign was there. Today it was for the large amount of rocks on the beach. The surf was very loud last night and I guess it was because it was full of rocks!

The wreck of the SS Dicky - this is what the beach is named after.

Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club in the background. This is where we went for dinner - twice!
The van park had vouchers :-)

Beach Art :-)

We walked all the way to the other end of the beach - well almost. 

There were so many dogs on the beach - more dogs than people.
Most owners picked up their dogs 'business.'

Heading back to the caravan park.

Until next holidays.....

Back up the coast at Dicky Beach again.

We are spending the Queen's Birthday weekend at Dicky Beach again. This time we got to take Miss Cooper.

 Here we are about to leave.

 Going down the driveway at 4.30pm.

 We hit the highway and all this traffic.
Luckily it was only local and although a lot of traffic it was moving.

 This weekend is all about Miss Cooper.

 Having breakfast.


 Cooper was so excited to see the beach.

 Collecting sand for a sand castle.

 Miss Cooper just saw a sea-gull.

Next stop - the playground - before the next storm hits.

Found this at an op shop - brand new with six napkins and only a slight watermark on the napkins.

We are next to the Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club, so went there for dinner. 
I had coconut prawns with banana and rocket salad - yum.

Peter had roghan josh curry.

Jonny had chicken parma
The food is great at the surf club.

We've been coming here for over 25 years, and I knew there was a wreck here, but never knew the history of the wreck or the name. I'm sure this sign is new!!!

The seas were very rough on Monday - this photo doesn't show how rough the surf was.

We've had rain and wind so far. I hope it clears up tomorrow.

Allison & Peter.
