Arrival in Jervis Bay – Vincentia

February 24, 2007

So after about a two and a half hour drive we arrived in Jervis Bay. The town where we were staying is called Vincentia, which was sandwiched between the exclusive Hyams Beach and the more local hangout of Huskisson.

As we turned into the road where our self-catering house lay, we were welcomed with a renegade ball flying out from a energetic game of street cricket. Our next door neighbours were celebrating Australia day traditionally with booze, alcohol and more booze. They were nicely merry by the time we pulled in and as they yelled for us to join their party, all hopes of a nice quiet weekend vanished in a second.

Bedroom at Corrinyah on Jervis BayThe house, Corrinyah on Jervis, is set literally steps away from the main Collingwood beach. It’s a wonderful upmarket beachhouse fully equipped with two bright bedrooms, nice kitchen, lounge with TV, dvd player and dvd’s and a remote controlled garage. The owners had even left us a welcoming letter, a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and choccies. They also had a tourist pack filled with sugested activities and restaurants in the area. Well recommended.

We popped over to the local supermarket to get some supplies, then I explored the lovely beach – very untouched, long and white.

Next up – dinner in an Aussie safari style tree-house…..
