NSW South Coast Continued - Booderee National Park

We are still on the NSW coast.  We've been camped up for 4 days in Booderee National Park which is in the Jervis Bay area.  Before there we spent one night at Depot Beach, which wasn't much cop so we pressed on to Jervis Bay.  The park is not too big, not too small, and the beaches are stunning:

It has been interesting for a number of other reasons too, namely:

It's home to the Royal Australian Navy's Survival and Ship Safety School, so we got to see some squaddies out on manouvres (actually they were at the historic lighthouse taking a tea break I reckon):

P1040869

We saw a dead seal being pecked at by something (probably a shark, I dont know what sort - also Paul caught two sharks in about 20 minutes on the beach near our campgound - only a little banjo and some sort of funny shovel nosed one we weren't sure about!):

P1040937

And too much other fun stuff like a kookaburra swooping a piece of cheese out of Em's and Emily's hands....possum's that dont know when to back off and one that nearly pissed on me as it ran up a tree when I chased it off....etc etc. 

Here is a picture of Em at Governor's Head with Bowen Island in the background:
