Saturday Snaps #4 – Water’s Edge of St Georges Basin

St Georges Basin

Location:  Taken on the water’s edge of St Georges Basin on the New South Wales South Coast of Australia from a vacant block of land on Naval Parade in the town of Erowal Bay.

My husband and I spent an amazing long weekend last year exploring Jervis Bay and the St George’s Basin area on the New South Wales South Coast of Australia. It’s about a two and a half hour drive from Sydney and easily achievable for a long weekend.

We stumbled across this vacant block of land one afternoon while out looking for kangaroos that we had been told, come out to graze just before sundown in the area. Parking the car we wandered down to the water’s edge where there was two old logs perfectly carved out into seats with the most spectacular view of the Basin. We sat there for about an hour watching the sunset with our only company, the pelican and his friend on the end of the wharf in front of us. It was perfectly peaceful and one of the highlights of our weekend.

Beautiful. I love the still pelican meditating at the end of its long day.

Agree with that sentiment completely! That pelican really looks like he had a rough day and now is just contemplating what to do for the remainder of the evening with the beautiful sunset as a backdrop.
