One Mile Beach, also known to surfers as Anna Bay beach is a very popular surfing and swimming beach. The beach is patrolled at the southern end with average wave height of 0.5m.
It was lovely to have our daughter Renee and her friend Jordan join us in Port Stephens for the Mother’s Day weekend even though the weather was very bleak. The Mother’s Day treat was the four of us to walk One Mile Beach together. Unfortunately, just as we were nearing the end a large rain front arrived, by the time, we completed the beach and returned to the nearby Caravan Park all of us were cold, wet but not miserable. Hot showers, warm dry cloths and a delicious meal together made up for the harsh weather.
Thanks, Renee and Jordan for travelling up from Canberra for this very special mother’s day.
