To the jumping cliffs and rock pools!
How beautiful is this giiiirl?!
This just doesn’t look real…
After lunch we changed beach, Rye Beach
Look at this water!
Em got bored and started digging a whole. We did quite a good job!
Time to head back to Melbourne, but before that we had to stop at the fair
Perfect ending to a perfect two days with this one
This is all in the wrong order. I should probably me writing about my Christmas adventures to Bondi but I felt like writing about New Year’s Day so that’s what I’m doing instead. Sorry about jumping around in time like this.
On New Year’s Day Em and I woke up around nine. I never sleep that late even if I’m up late the night before. We eventually got out of bed and the sun was shining. It was an absolutely beautiful day. After a bit of breakfast we decided to go to the nearby rock pools because there were cliffs there to be jumped from! It looked stunning in the pictures I was shown so couldn’t wait to see it in real life. It did not disappoint! The sight that hit us as we were walking down to the beach from the car took my breath away. It’s scenery like this you see in photos but never actually think you are going to experience in real life. How can a place be this beautiful?!
We walked round to the jumping cliff. It looked like a dream as well. The rock pool you jumped into was an incredible turquoise colour. Em and I were both a bit hesitant to jump but worked our way up to the second highest height. Neither of us had quite the stomach to dare to jump from the highest point that day but we said we would come back and try it soon. That feeling when you’re standing on the edge is pretty scary! What I’ve learnt is you can’t stand there staring for too long, I give myself three seconds and then just go. Otherwise you overthink it.
Around lunch time we headed back to the house to refuel with some scrambled tofu with veggies and then drove down to Rye Beach. This one as well, one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. White sand and turquoise waters. It looked like a remote tropical island. Towards the evening Em got bored and started digging a hole (I joined in to help her out haha) and we decided it was time get moving back to Melbourne, unfortunately. On the way back we stopped at the Rye fair to go on some rides. It looked too fun not to! I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last went on a ride, it’s so much fun! How could I have forgotten?
Then it was time to hit the road. The sun was setting as we blasted old Taylor Swift songs and we were singing our lungs out. What a start to 2019. Thank you Em for the most amazing time!
