Birthday camping at cave beach

For Chris's birthday weekend we once again headed down south to Jervis bay to go camping at Cave Beach.

You may remember this from previous camping trips, but it's really one of our favorite camp grounds and we were happy to return.
One of the things that we really like about the spot is the abundance of kangaroos that are all around the campsite.
With all of the campers around these kangaroos have figured out that it pays off to get close to the humans.
Although we all did our anti-rain dance, unfortunately the weather didn't play along too well on Saturday and instead it was overcast and spitting rain off an on throughout the day.  Boredom was avoided with some walks on the beach coupled with a few beers by the campfire while we hid out under the shelter.
Just as dusk was coming, the sky started to clear up and the sun peeked out to give us an amazing double rainbow out over the beach.
We all quickly ran down to the beach to see it over the ocean.
Amazingly we could actually see both sides of both rainbows which isn't something that you get to see every day.
We stayed down on the beach as the sun started to set, turning the sky pink.

 As the sun went down we all got a bit silly.

After the sun dipped below the horizon we headed back to our campfire for some dinner, topped off with cakes made in oranges in the campfire for Chris's birthday.
Sunday dawned clear and sunny, and instead of taking pictures we all headed to the beach as quick as possible for some surfing and boogie boarding before heading home from a great weekend.
