"Our" Beach

Just about opposite the entrance to our road, across the highway, is the track to Meroo Head and Termeil Beach which are part of the Meroo National Park. Considered 'our' beach, we hardly ever go there due to the chronic poor state of the road and the usually dangerous swimming conditions.
But it is a pretty beach, very wide, quite isolated and quiet except during holiday times when the campers descend on the place in their hundreds.
At the northern end behind the sandhills lies Termeil Lake into which our creek empties, when it is running that is. Over the headland to the south is Meroo Lake. Both are part of the estaurine lake system that is an important part of the south coast environment.
Within the headland is a secret cove. It is a great place to be during the winter when the southerly winds are blowing. Facing north it captures the sun for most of the day and turns into a virtual oven which is great on those cold days. It is protected from the surf by a small reef littered with deep rockpools.

We took Crystal for a visit and enjoyed a few hours soaking up the sun and walking the beach.
