On the first night of our honeymoon we stayed at a bed and breakfast across the road from the church where we got married! I am glad none of our friends and relatives treated us to gongs or other midnight pranks!
The next day we travelled for over four hours to our next destination . . . Aurora Beach Cottage near Bicheno. This remote cottage is right on secluded beach. We did not see another person on the beach during the four days we were there. It was a delightful place to stay, and one day there was a glorious rainbow reaching right from the cottage to the beach.
This is my favourite honeymoon picture! We took a day trip to Freycinet National Park, about an hour's drive away. We used the self-timer for this photo. No-kissing rules before marriage make kissing an exciting novelty while on honeymoon . . . and perhaps for the first few months of marriage as well!
For the last four nights of our honeymoon we stayed at Lemonthyme Lodge near Cradle Mountain. We stayed in a cabin overlooking the wilderness. We enjoyed going to walks along nearby trails. We went to Cradle Mountain, about 45 mins drive away, and enjoyed walking around Dove Lake.
