Connect with Nature
When we arrived late that afternoon and decided to take a stroll along the esplanade to find a dinner spot. We were greeted at the Bayview Hotel where we enjoyed an afternoon drink and a delicious dinner while watching some patrons belt out some tunes on karaoke night.
The next day after a nice sleep-in and a walk along the lake we drove through Umina to get across to the Pearl Beach Arboretum, experiencing the unique sanctuary, and learning about native flora and fauna conservation.
The early afternoon was spent reading and napping on the back deck of the Nauti, and enjoying some of the delicious treats provided. Sunset was fast approaching and we thought it would be a beautiful way to end our trip by having a picnic overlooking Pearl Beach and the Southern headlands....
