A last minute change of route because of forecast very strong southerly winds, ensured Batemans Bay Bush Walkers still enjoyed their walk at Broulee Island last Saturday.  First the view from the headland before walking around the southern side of the Island first, followed by morning tea on the sheltered side, then up onto the top where a tiny track was followed to the lonely early grave of Elizabeth Malaber.  Along the way we admired flowering native trees, large twisting wooden vines along fallen tree trunks and branches and were quite curious about some abnormal growths on some of the Pittosporum tree trunks.

Back down on the way to the beach Bob’s sharp eyes spotted a very delicate black cicada emerging from its shell on a blade of grass.

Over-all a nice pleasant walk thanks Bob.
