Jervis Bay, looking toward Pt Perpendicular
This is the lighthouse on Pt Perpendicular. I can't begin to describe the force of the wind the day we were there. That is me, right in the centre of the photo. It was the day after the terrible storms that lashed the coast a little further north of where we were. I am no lightweight, and I could barely stand up for the force of the gale. I can't imagine what it must have been like to be the wife of the lighthouse keeper, isolated in such a desolate place, with no company and no communications for weeks or months at a time.
One day we went to the very nice little town of Berry, where the Kangaroo Valley joins the coast. Lots of lovely shops, including a needlework shop crammed full of goodies. I found these die cut felt flowers - they had them in a range of sizes - these are about 1 3/4 inches - the big one is about 3 inches across. I also picked up the Clover yo-yo maker - I had seen them advertised and they looked like fun.
