27 bushwalkers assembled on South Head Road in the fresh rain-washed morning air to start an interesting and varied 10 km walk led by Bob T.
First stop was Dolphin Beach where Bob pointed out the many tracks left in the sand by numerous birds and animals. Morning tea was taken on a sandhill with a view of the vivid blue ocean bordered by crashing white surf.
The group then entered park like open forest with sheoaks, swamp mahoganys, banksias and spotted gum amongst the many trees on show. Lunch at Newstead Pond was preceded by a couple of stiff climbs out of the forest to whet our appetites. Thanks Bob for an inspired bit of leading.
