The last day of my South Coast roadtrip was my Birthday, I turned 23, and I couldn't have imagined a better way to start it. The sunrise was beyond magical. #sorrynotsorry for the sunrise spam/ dog photoshoot.
That fear in her eyes..
Not only does Mahria have two crazy photogenic dogs, she also has two beautiful horses Finchy and Shelley.
Sassie is just completely fearless.
This was my last meal with Mahria before she went to work and I started making my way home.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to you Mahria for letting me stay at your place and making me feel like I have a home away from from. I had such an amazing time with you even if we couldn't spend that much time because of your work. I truly cherish every moment we had together. Can't wait to come back and see you after my exams.
Quick stop off at Cupitt's winery to admire the view.
First rest stop, Callala Bay Jetty.
We also stopped off at Callala Creek for a little run around.
This is Callala Beach. It is very close to Hyam's but we didn't have time to backtrack. As you can see the sand is quite white hear. Still not entirely sure why there was so much red seaweed but it looked beautiful. I can only imagine how spectacular an aerial shot of this landscape would have looked.
My partner in crime and in life, I don't know where I would be without my fellow adventurer.
This was the last stop on our journey home. I was just so overwhelmed with how stunning the rolling hills looked near Kiama, I just had to pull over to capture the moment. Not only did I turn 23 on this roadtrip but I also grew emotionally. I think this roadtrip made me stronger and taught me to love my own company. Even if technically I was never really alone and always had my number one main girl by my side. It just reminded me of who I was when I lived in London, independant, adventurous, curious and brave. Being alone is not something to be upset about or afraid of. It is something to be embraced. I find that the times I am alone are the times I grow the most into the person I want to be, not someone who is influenced by the people around me. If there is one quote I will always live by it’s by Dr Seuss, “Today you are you, that is truer then true. There is no one alive that is youer then you."
