Nelson Bay – Trying Stand up paddleboarding

I was awake 5am this morning when it was still dark. Gradually the world woke up and it proved to be a glorious day.


Kevin sent me this photo of Bailey having cuddles on the bed.


Eventually I got dressed and headed out on my morning walk.

Morning walk at Nelson Bay

As you can see it was such a lovely walk.


I was even able to stop at Bakers Delight on the way back and bring home some fresh bread. I enjoyed a berry smoothie on our verandah.


Mid-morning we packed up and headed down to the beach. I took a LOT of photos and video but somehow lost them on my new underwater camera. So odd, as I’d even checked some of them when we were down there.


Of course, all the great shots I had of Christy trying SUP (stand up paddleboarding) for the first time were gone. Guess I should be greatful that I have some to help remember the occasion.



I even had a little go myself, but I only tried to kneeling stage. I’m pretty sure if I’d tried standing I would have fallen straight off.

After our beach excursion, we got changed and head to Nelson Head to have lunch at the Lighthouse Cafe.


As you can see there is a gorgeous view from here over Shoal Bay and out through the heads.


Now, that’s what I call lunch with view.



I ordered a Chicken salad with no chicken and it was just delicious. Perfect with a nice cup of peppermint tea.


The remainder of the afternoon was spent relaxing on the verandah, and later in the evening Dad cooked a BBQ for our dinner.


Don’t forget you can always check out the video for more details of the day.

  1. Hi Libby,

    I wouldn’t even be able to do the kneeling stage of SUP, I don’t think! It does look like fun though 🙂

    Enjoy your time at Nelson Bay!
