On Sunday, Aug. 29th we left Wiseman's Ferry and drove to a town at the beach called Newcastle. It was about a 2 hour drive. We drove through downtown Newcastle and then stopped at a beach by a light house and had lunch. There were people at the beach swimming and surfing.
After lunch we drove on to the Ocean Pools. They are swimming pools that are build right on the edge of the surf, and the ocean water fills the pools.
We didn't stay long in Newcastle because we wanted to get to Port Stephens early enough to find a room.
