Ocean Baths

We spent a nice day at the Ocean Baths in Newcastle today. For a change we decided that Grace deserved a beach day that suited her age.

Off we went to a man-made beach with a low circular wall creating a shallow sea without waves. Beyond the wall the waves crashed against the rocks and surfers rode and sank in the massive swell. Inside the wall the 6 kids splashed and played in water that never went past their hips.

It lacked the adrenaline rush off the big waves that the older kids had enjoyed at Caves Beach and Catherine Hill Bay but Grace had a ball!

After a couple of hours we jumped back into the car and headed off to the Newcastle Museum and the kids spent a good couple of hours racing around the science room doing loads of experiments until the nice museum man kicked us out at closing time.
