Thirteen daredevils finally found Black Rocks, a challenge in itself involving a lengthy dirt road.  Another sunny day, Campbell certainly has a direct connection to ensure ideal weather conditions for his hikes!  We set off on nine kilometres of strolling, wading, scrambling across sand, through surf, up and down coffee rocks.  With the gentle sound of waves and birds soothing us along the jaunt. 

 

Morning tea by the sea and lunch on the river, then back along a well defined track.  So sunny the mud had dried so it made walking and wildflower spotting easy.  Flannel flowers, purple violets, buttercups, bush orchids and many other natives. I heard many birds but only spotted a few oystercatchers with their fluffy little chicks. Good company, good conversation plus an hilarious ozzie poem.
