Cubbyhouse Christening

Remember the crew from a few weeks back at Camp on Allyn? Well one of the tenters decided to upgrade and got themselves a little Avan Camper, so we decided to stay close to home and christen the “cubbyhouse”.

We made a quick getaway after finishing work, getting to the park – Blacksmiths Beachside Holiday Park – just before the office closed to pick up our gate codes and keys.

We hadn’t long pulled in before the others arrived and we got everyone set up.

Beer, Wine, Cheese – yep we’re settled in okay.

We awoke the next morning to a beautiful day and after an easy cookup for breaky under the awesome covered BBQ area before hitching up the pups and heading to the beach to cool off. The water was magic!

It took us a little bit of walking and scouting but we found a spot for the pups to get onto the beach and into the water – they loved it.


Flo being Flo!

Playing around with the camera on the phone – not too bad


There were quite a few of these guys on the edge of the beach thankfully didnt see any in the water.

We had a lovely weekend relaxing so much so i don’t think we took any other pictures LOL.

If you’re looking for a park around the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie area this is a fabulous little park, facilities are great and obviously there is a doggy option – just bring the aeroguard the sand-flies were pretty ferocious on the Saturday night.
