Photographer's Note

After a long day at sea (previous post) I was dropping one of the guys off at a public wharf near here, coming down the channel the sun popped out for just a minute or two and lit up this small community on the edge of the Bouddi National Park.
Bouddi is the name the local aboriginal tribe had for this area and it carries the name today. The park totals about 1400 acres and has access to the ocean on one side and Broken Bay/Brisbane Water on the other. It is a very popular spot for bush walking and water activities. On the other side of this hill is Maitland Bay, so named after the wreck of the Maitland in 1898.
Bouddi National Park is located on the northern side of Broken Bay, by boat, it is a very short distance from Sydney but, travelling by road it takes about two hours to get there.
If you are planning a trip to Sydney this part of the central coast is a must see. There are numerous quaint villages, excellent restaurants and a good smattering of pubs that sell icy cold beer for the hot and thirsty traveller, matter of fact, I feel like one now.
