Monday Mayhem - Dentistry and Blowholes

Last week we had dental appointments in Sydney. While I realise that this may seem a long way to go to have someone poking around inside your mouth it is somewhat cheaper to go to our health insurers facility than it is to go to a local.

We decided to make a little holiday of the trip and drove to Kiama which is on the south coast of NSW. It is also that last stop on the electrified rail line with trains going up to Sydney quite regularly.

After getting our teeth cleaned and probed for problems we got back to Kiama and decided to do the touristy thing and check out the blowhole.

The hole that everyone goes to Kiama to see

Not as spectacular as I've seen it but still active

While we were there Sue wanted to get our photo taken at the base of the lighthouse to match a photo she has of her parents.

After this we decided to check out the Little Blowhole. I hadn't known about this little blowhole prior to this visit so I was somewhat intrigued to see if it was any good, and it was. It was actually more spectacular than the main blowhole that everyone goes to see.

The hole doesn't look very impressive, only about a foot square

It put on quite a display while we were there

Just for a little perspective on how big some of
the plumes of water were
Apart from spending half an hour in the dentist chair it was quite a pleasant trip. On Friday we relocated to Bomaderry (a little further south) to visit family and celebrate an upcoming birthday.
