We have moved a little bit further south, to Jervis Bay. This is a large, protected bay with calm waters and white, sandy beaches. The locals call it the whitest sand in the World. We have seen similar white, powdery beaches on the Isle de Pins in New Caledonia, there the locals said that the sand is the digestiv remnants from fish that eat hard coral. I have not yet found out what made the local beaches here. They are wonderful to walk along at any rate and the water is calm and warm.

We are staying in a cottage in the woods close by, the theme for the cottages here is a village consisting of a school, bank, post office, and general store, which we inhabit. Hope nobody is going to knock on our door in the middle of the night to get a pint of milk.
