Yeh, we're still there, so we thought we'd give you at least short update and some fotos we took in the last months.
Until the end of May the weather was still great so we were able to do a few trips and spend some more time on the beach.
The last weekend in April, we went to Seal Rocks with Rob and his friend Gerald. The area is amazingly beautiful and quiet with a camping ground perfectly located just across the dunes from the surf.
The waves were perfect on the first day and we couldn't wait to get into the water the next morning.
As we went down to the beach though, we discovered that there were not only massive schooling fish but also some white pointers (according to the fishermen)which were obviously having a great feast!
Two guys paddelled out anyway, but came back in again very soon, after two of the 3-4 m sharks had come really close. The surf was still up but we decided to spend the rest of the day just watching the spectacle from the beach.
Bondi also got some nice waves, so Julia could go surfing almost every day (here together with our nice neighbour Sterre), while Frank had fun watching the guys in the skatepark (until he could finally skate himself - he had to wait for Julia to bring his board over from Germany).
We also went to the Royal National Park, south of Sydney, which does not only offer stunning nature but also some great surf spots!
Mid-May, Julia went back to Munich for her brother's wedding.
It was great to see all the family and friends again and to spend some time together! Needless to say, that the time went by way too fast and a week is simply too short!
