Cosy South Coast Getaway

With the car packed and surfboards on the roof, we were excited to spend the weekend exploring a new area of the South Coast with some friends. After arriving at the beautiful accommodation, the first thing we did was go and check out the beaches and decide what we wanted to do for the weekend.

We made the most of the day by getting up early for sunrise, followed by a lazy morning and a big breakfast. During the day we checked out the nearby cafes and restaurants and ate the most delicious food. Down at the beach, some of us read books while the others surfed. We had picnics on the deck and soaked up the sun in the deck chairs. Afternoons were spent on the beach until sunset, and nights were spent around the dining table talking and playing games.

Sandy feet, plenty of sunshine, good food, great company and a beautiful place to stay is the perfect recipe for a relaxing weekend away.
