I am Back...Photo's from Trip





Can there be a more perfect way to spend a week? Not for me my friends. I am back from a week away in Northern NSW at one of my favourite beach towns: Wooli. The locals asked me not to blog about this place too much. It is a well kept secret hideaway that has escaped development and crowds. Lots of people ask "Where is Wooli"... and that's how I like it. Long stretches of beach all to yourself. Lot's of places to have a picnic...with no neighbours.
Here are some photo's I took while away. Have lots to talk about this week. Hope you are all well.

  1. Sounds like HEAVEN! I haven't been to our belgian coast in years... It looks so awful with apartment buildings all over and far too crowded... but... just over the border... not so far away... is... France! Sigh, what a difference! Still not NSW and Wooli I'm sure but still.
    Bye,
    Marian

  9. Your secret is safe with me, and another 2000+ of your best friends ;) So long as we all don't try to book a weekend at the same time no-one will ever suspect you've been so generous with your 'local knowledge'. It certainly does look like a fabulous place to spend a relaxing few days.

  37. Now this looks like the perfect dreamy laid back place for me! Love the name 'Barefoot Beachhouse' perfect!

    How cute is your little poochie. Were you able to have him/her in the beach house too? I'm always on the hunt for a place to take 'The Humphrey'.

  42. Hi dear Simone
    this is uncanny for me.. I've been trying to remember for years the name of a place i visited in my 20's.. and it was Wooli... that shopfront is exactly as I recall all the little houses lined up against the water.. [or I am having some strange altered memories.. hahaha]... The funny thing is i recently met some ppl here in Sydney.. from up that way.. and was recalling how much I liked it..

    Have a lovely week.. and thanks for your kind words on my blog birthday post.. so appreciated.. ciao xxxx Julie

  49. These are great holiday shots. I live in Sydney and must say I have never heard of Wooli. Even though I am a great lover of Northern NSW.

    I have added you to my blog roll as I love your authentic beachy style.

    Best Carolyn

  50. I totally get it Simone. All I can say is a week isn't enough! Did you stay at that divine beach cottage? Right on the beach. Adore that first shot. Glad you had such a great time. You so deserve it. What a first term. Hope school life is treating you both well. Pruxxx

  56. Did you stay in the Blue Shack again? We have had a holiday there in the past. It is a little bit of heaven and one of my favourite places. Hopefully not too many people find this part of the world - being away from it all is what makes it magical.
