What to Pack for Nimmo Bay

I examine every little thing on the website (like what to pack), but was even now a bit doubtful about some of the issues to bring.  How fancy was the cafe?  How soiled and wet would we be obtaining? Based on how you are acquiring there, you may well be confined to a lesser bag so you have to be a little bit of a packing ninja below!  I ended up not putting on any of my fancier clothing (the cafe is gorgeous but super chill, there is no gown code), and a pair of good sandals and a amazing pair of boots like Blundstones are all you want for footwear.  They have all the rain gear and climbing boots etc for you there! In this article is what I packed (minus the sparkly outfit and heels that I really should have remaining driving):
