We scuttled our plans for backcountry hiking and camping in Splendid Rock up in the Blue Mountains this weekend, given the uncertain weather outlook. Truth be told, I was quite happy with the decision, since we have been pretty much traveling non-stop for the past two months.
Instead, we opted for a spot of indoors rock climbing on Saturday, and on Sunday, headed up the coast to Bouddi National Park to do the coastal walk.
Rather than doing a loop back, we did a car shuffle – much more fun. We started off from McMasters Beach, and even though the ambient temperatures were pretty mild, we were soon sweating under the full glare of the sun.
So it was with much anticipation and relief when we hit Maitland Bay, and dove into the refreshing calm waters to cool off. Felt absolutely heavenly.
Finished off the walk right at sunset near Putty Beach campground, where we scuffed down some pizza and guzzled down beer while planning our next adventures. Good times.
