I planned a southbound roadtrip to scour the vintage & junk shop I had spotted down the south coast from Sydney. A nice combination of work & fun!
I took the scenic turnoff from the highway toward Stanwell park which revealed some naïve ships in a bottle & other bits & bobs. Although not packed with shops, the road & scenery are easy on the eye and a stop at the Berry sourdough bakery off the main road for a lunch break (or coffee) is a must. The other main stops are Ulladulla & Milton with a highlight at Turnball Bros.
After a hard day of driving & shopping, the reward at the end was my very good friends beach shack to stay at for the night. His thriving fruit & vegetable patch rewarded us with tomatoes, basil, parsley, figs, passionfruit, cucumber and peppers.
The shack is the perfect combo of casual laid back sand-on-your-feet attitude, and sink-yourself-into lounges, put-your-feet-up furniture, pull-the-indoors-out style. Wicker, linen, oversized knits, shells, stripe-y terry towelling, coir, cane, painted wood and easy sweep wooden floors made for the most enjoyable stay- Thanks JH.
Look out for my nautical fish-y props at The Fish Shop & Amateur Fishing Club at 22 Challis Ave Potts Point.
