Family Holiday Fun

Our yearly family holiday at Crescent Head is growing ! We started coming here in 2002 when our own boys were 17, 15, 13 and 8. They are now 31, 29, 27 and 22. We came every year for 8 years and then had 5 year break until we started coming back here 3 years ago.

This year we had 3 cabins and 2 camp sites on the creek front with my Mum ( 77) and Brads Mum ( 80) getting a cabin each and 3 of our 4 boys and wives/girlfriends coming and 6 grandchildren. - a total of 16 of us.

Michael and Jane had our old swan camper van and we took our away our new Jayco expander that has bunks and can sleep 7. Loving it!!! The big fridge is awesome, love the washing machine, hot water, outside hot shower.and all the cupboard space.

With the 3 youngest grandchildren ( twins - Tayo and Eliana and Zahli) all being 19 months it was a very busy time. The older ones were: Alaiya 8 Benaiah 6 Ezra 4

Crescent has always been a magical place of serenity and fun playing between the creek and surf. Trips to back beach Plomer to check out the surf and to the rock pools at Delicate Nobby Lots of paddle boarding this year in Killick Creek in the crystal clear water seeing lots of schools of fish.

This will be the last year of the old white wooden bridge that is over 100 years old. In July It was damaged by a storm and the new one will be finished soon. We will miss the old one that is easy to jump off at high tide and great to sit dangling your feet and looking over the side watching an incredible sunset.

Everyone left after the first week and Brad and I stayed on another week to relax! Drove on the beach north to Hat head and then on the beach to Smoky Cape and South West Rocks where we went paddle boarding by the old jail and caught some small waves. Saw millions of beached blue bottles on the beach and some were huge.

Went paddle boarding each morning up Killick Creek for 1 1/2 hours, read lots of books and chilled.
