It was a long weekend and it was hot. Those two factors combined to make the Silvermine Bay waterfall a tempting option for a family day out.
Plus, the waterfall was an easy five minute hike from the beach (unlike Bride's Pool, which I have heard about but am too lazy to hike to).
Luckily, there had been a downpour a few days ago so the waterfall was, well, falling. We have been there a couple of times where the water was trickling down slower than a drain pipe.
There is something soothing about just sitting and listening to the white noise of falling water and soaking your feet in the ice cold stream. Maybe next time we should take a picnic with us.
