[Video] Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park

A few months ago, all national parks in NSW had free entry and - taking full advantage of this because who doesn't like free things - S and I headed to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. We parked at West Head Lookout and went on a short bushwalk to Great Mackerel Beach. Near the end of the track, it was more bushwhacking than walking. A fellow walker let us pass on the "path" and said, "you can scare away the snakes for us".

Monthly Recap: January

January was about:

Smothering my body with sunscreen; recovering from indulgences of December; waiting for summer storms; sighing with relief from the Southerly; clambering up and down rocks; holding onto my bikini top in the waves; re-learning how to swim; feeling proud about treading water for 10 minutes; accidentally straying from the trail; scratching my legs from dried twigs and branches; getting eaten alive by mozzies, enjoying the <25°C days; devouring books; signing up to a library near work; getting excited about the library's ebook selection; eating less processed food; struggling to get into the swing of blogging; and planning for the future.

Music: Darius Rucker album - When Was the Last Time*
Book: Australia Day - Melanie Cheng

* I am pretty devastated that I didn't realise he had a Sydney show which is now sold out.

Adventures in Sydney: Two Creeks Track

Too often I delay things simply because, 'I will get around to it one day'. As I don't foresee a move from my current location within the next few years, I take the places nearby for granted and slowly become complacent.

It is the second week of 2018 and the first week back at work. The last two weeks have been absolutely glorious and it has been the most relaxing break I have had in a while. My self-imposed digital ban wasn't overly successful however I did manage to spend a lot of time offline. Admittedly, trying to achieve a total ban was a bit ambitious.

It was a break filled with reading and bushwalking, my two favourite activities in the entire world. Keep an eye out for upcoming posts about the places that I visited. If you don't already follow me on Goodreads, please do! I love to see stalk what other people are reading.
