My first vacation here in Australia was to wonderful Avoca Beach. It was a working vacation for me but very relaxing compared to being at home. We shared childcare duties and spent everyday at the beach playing in the waves and laying on the beach. I averaged about a book a day in the sun! We rented a beach house within walking distance to the beach. I had my own little apartment which was nice but did spend most of my time with everyone else. It was a wonderful trip to a quiet beach town!
