A Moment In Time That Changed Everything Anthology 2022

A Moment In Time That Changed Everything

It was time to move. We lived on the south coast and had just sold our beach house. There were so many great memories there, but a new chapter was beginning. First, we planned to move to Sydney. Lockdown was in full swing, so the plan changed many times. Covid cases were highest in Sydney, with many hot spots in the city.

“Let’s look at the Peninsular” I suggested. Many times, I had holidayed there in the past. Many friends and family were here. So, in a small moment that changed everything. We made the long trip to beautiful Woy Woy to take a look. Everything was starting to open here although some strictions were still in place. There are many special places to visit.

First, the Spike Milligan bridge is a great walk along the water. The views are incredible. Many large white pelicans, colourful kayaks, jet skis and small boats appear along the way to Tascott, which has a great picnic spot beside the lake.

The is a ferry that travels to many local towns like Empire Bay, a beautiful town with a few shops, great walks, and peaceful place to think, write and read with a great pastry and coffee. Davistown is also on the ferry run, with restaurants, cafes, and

a club for lunch. You could also bring a picnic with you and enjoy a spot beside the lake for lunch.

Another great walk in along the waterfront from the Leisure centre to Woy Woy Fishman’s Wharf seafoods. The seafood is specular. I love sharing the seafood basket with a friend. The fresh taste and sweet smell are amazing. Here on the water there are wild ducks, large pelicans sitting on an island, specular boats, long timber wharves, and beautiful homes to see, as well as many timber seats to rest on along the way.  You can ride you bike long this route, push a pram with your kids, or take your dog for a walk and enjoy the happy people that Woy Woy has to offer.

After six months living here, I knew we make the right choice.
