If you haven’t read my first postcard from Sydney, start here!
You might remember me having mentioned that I would shortly be moving back to Paris. I did, in fact, return – Salut from the heatwave-ravaged city of lights! – but before stepping onto that plane a few weeks ago, I managed to squeeze in a little trip to the seaside with my parents.
Kiama is a coastal town on the New South Wales south coast, and it’s perhaps a little different from your stereotypical Aussie beach spot – not so surfer-centric and with less endless stretches of white sand and hot days (or at least not in the wintertime, when I always go.) But it’s got a chill, coastal community feel, plus the world’s largest blowhole (plumes of ocean water shooting up through caverns), an iCoNiC lighthouse, a cute Main Street dotted with old-fashioned ice creameries and candy stores, seaside footy fields, grassy picnic spots galore, and plenty of awe-inspiring coastal views to ponder. A little further down the coast, you can spot a whale or two, and heading a little further inland will lead you to quaint country towns.
Taking a break from indulging in fresh prawns and fizzy drink and getting ice cream with my dad, I wrote you a little something:
Keep an eye out for a postcard from Paris very soon. Until then, extra pics from my wintery ocean getaway! Bisous xx
