Down on the Beach

Here are some photographs of our camping experience at Lennox Head. Such a pretty pretty place. Our campsite was right on Lake Ainsworth and across the road from the beach. Tomorrow I will share my thrift store finds and tips for shopping in the area.
Even though camping I always pay attention the the little things. A pretty tablecloth. Floral Cushions. Deck chairs in bright colours. Hope you enjoy.
