Today we drove out to Jarvis Bay – about 190 clicks south of Sydney. We were expecting summer time temperatures and clear skies but upon arrival were greeted with heavy fog showers, wind and unseasonably cold temperatures. Needless to say, this made for a miserable picnic lunch (from the awesome Husky Bakery & Cafe in Huskisson Beach) and even more miserable swimming for those brave enough souls in the water.
We swam with dolphins in Mozambique earlier this year – this time we took a dolphin cruise. We kept our hopes low as they told us the boat went out for two hours in the morning and not one dolphin was seen. This time, everywhere the boat went we were surrounded by pods of dolphins – 5 or 6 at a time under the bow and many more jumping along both sides of the boat.
Later in the day we headed for the Blue Mountains again, only this time these parts of the mountains were green with lush rainforest like vegetation. Driving through Kangaroo Valley we were sorely disappointed as we did not see even one Roo. One of the highlights here is Fitzroy Falls – one of the tallest waterfalls in New South Wales.
We are hoping for better weather tomorrow!
