Weekend in Kiama, February 19-21, 2010
|We finished the day with one of the "Scenic Drives" from the Guidebook. This one took us south of Kiama to several lookouts and beaches, including Seven Mile Beach. There were lots of families with little kids playing in the water, and we could see several windsurfers and even a kitesurfer out on the waves.|

|Then he found a fossil!|
|We finished the drive in Berry, a sleepy little town where everything closes early on Saturday. Everything, that is, except the pub. We enjoyed a beer on the swing on the front porch.|
|We had some time to kill before dinner, so we headed back to the Blowhole to try to get a photo of it going off. This was the best I could do.|
Dinner was at the Ritzy Gritz, a much-awarded Mexican eatery we'd seen recommended. It was great! I haven't had good experience with Mexican in Australia, but this was right up there. Well worth a go if you're in town.
|We started Sunday with another big breakfast from Sabine. Then we packed up and headed out. We stopped off in town to check out the monthly market at Black Beach. Stalls stretched all around the water's edge. We bought the Snook a new belt from a local leatherworker, and I bought a ceramic wombat for my garden!|
It took us about 2.5 hours to get back home. Those roads are TWISTY! I'd definitely love to go back to the area again. It was the absolute perfect weekend to visit; the rain of the last few weeks had left everything lush and green. If you're in the Sydney area, it's definitely worth a trip.
