ExplorOz - David & Michelle

Our main reason for coming to Onslow was the reputed excellent fishing. We located the hot spots - Sunset Beach which really did look like a beautiful place to beach camp and had lots of shade but one of those nasty signs we've come to despise - NO CAMPING. We tried to beach fish but only lasted a few casts and gave up. It was very windy and withing seconds of casting our lines ended up washed up on the shore. Add to that the water was gritty and muddy that it was revolting to stand knee deep, as you do when beach fishing.

We moved on to 4 Mile Creek and spent a couple of hours with no better luck other than a few catfish and a crab that got away.

We spent the afternoon reading, shell collecting and David did an oil change. Dinner was not fish and so we had a revolting tin of Spaghetti and Beef sauce. The kids went to bed early and so we pulled out the Mahjong set and taught Dorothy and Rob how to play.
