Next we headed towards the Bay of Fires which is the North East coastline and it is stunningly beautiful, the beaches are beautiful, mostly empty and the camping is free. The nearest town is St Helens so we stocked up on gas, fuel, food and drinks and headed for the coast. We found a perfect spot at Cosy Corner (North), where we bunkered down for a week of go-slow mode.... check out the colour of the water.

We visited the Eddystone lighthouse, beautiful.
Whilst we were there Lucas got bitten by a scorpion... he's fine.
Ross went diving and caught a big crayfish (aka lobster - very large). We managed to find someone in the campground with a pot big enough to cook it in and it was too much for Ross to even eat.

|not so sure about Dad's catch|
The boys spent their week milling around the campsite, swimming (it is too cold for me), snorkelling, playing cricket, soccor, homeschool, chatting to the grey nomads (for anyone who doesn't know these are the grandparents who spend their retirement travelling the country), playing in the sand/dirt, climbing all sorts of rocks and boulders and a lot of bicycle riding....
