Jimmy's Beach, Hawks Nest

We've now headed west to another beautiful seaside location called Jimmy's Beach, Hawks Nest which is a suburb 220 km (137 miles) from Sydney. This delightful little location is bordered by the Tasman Sea on the east, the Myall River to the west and Port Stephens to the south.
Looking out to Broughton Island - Myall Lakes National Park
Being in such close proximity to Australia's largest city Sydney, Hawks Nest is a popular weekend getaway and holiday location for Sydneysiders.

Naturally with all this water surrounding us we just had to have a fish. Even though we did catch fish there were none suitable for the table.
Quite a pretty location to have a fish

Unfortunately I caught a stingray - but all was good. He was released safe and sound

Seeing this is an oyster growing area I just had to give them a try.
Oh they were so  nice.
