Kiama blowhole

For the Queen's birthday we drove about an hour south of here to Kiama. There is a blowhole there that we have been wanting to go see, but we never go because there is no way of knowing if the blowhole will be blowing when we get there. The conditions have to be just right. So we decided we had the whole day and even if the blowhole wasn't blowing we could explore the area. Annabelle was great and slept the whole way there. It was a chilly day, but the blowhole was blowing!! It was really cool to see. We tried to get a good picture of it, but pictures don't quite do it justice. It's hard to capture the magnitude of it and you loose out on the great sounds it makes. It was a beautiful! We decided to drive over to a beach we could see from the blowhole. We went and ate lunch on the beach and it was perfect. The rocks sheltered the beach, so it stayed nice and warm. There was great surf and it was clean and quiet. Annabelle played in the sand (and ate more than we would have liked her to =)) and we collected some really cool shells. Who would have known that celebrating the Queen's birthday could be so fun ;).
