We are the first to admit that it has been cold and rainy over the last few weeks in Port Stephens. This is by our standards, as we locals are used to clear, crisp Winters with temperatures very rarely dropping below 10 degrees (visitors from Melbourne would wonder what we are complaining about). This does not stop us though! So, what have the locals and visitors been doing this Winter?
We have thrown on a jacket and scarf and headed out for walks (a great walk is from Dutchies Beach through to Nelson Bay, stop of for some lunch and walk back), walked to the top of Tomaree Headland to take in the views (look out for whales), eaten good food at our local cafes (in particular there are some fantastic breakfast cafes in the Bay), taken the kids to the movies or ten pin bowling, headed out to Boat Harbour to look for whales, jumped on the bikes and gone for a ride (with a coffee stop along the way).
In the grand scheme of things, it really isn't very cold or wet. The days are getting longer and the weather is beginning to warm up.
It would be even better if we were on holidays with a nice view! Port Stephens Accommodation can take care of this for you. Visit www.portstephensaccommodation.com
