Beaches, cliff tops and rock platforms are usually the attractions on the McKenzies Beach to Circuit Beach walk, however big seas and strong winds saw Brian substitute urban exploration for rock hopping!
While the cliff tops afforded magnificent views of wind swept seas and dramatic skies, the bush tracks surprised with patches of wattle and maidenhair fern, thriving despite the dry conditions and walking high on the sand was the only way to keep dry feet on the beach sections. Morning tea at Cafe Three66 at Mosquito Bay was somewhat extended as a reward for braving the cold winds and, more importantly, for catching up with friends. The final section around Lilli Pilli headland was more sheltered from the winds and saw the 8km walk completed by lunch, as expected.
Thanks to Brian for leading and organising the transport for the day.
