A clear, but cool and breezy morning that soon warmed up to meke it perfect day for a beach walk.
Spectacular views from the cliffs at Lennox Head and the sound of waves crashing onshore is something that the bushwalkers rarely see. Eagle eye Paul spotted a whale but the rest of us were amazed at the surfers trying to get out past the swells for a (possible) ride in.
Lots of variation in flora and quite a few sea birds to keep us all interested. We made very good time down to Ballina to the extent we were one hour early for the scheduled lunch at the Lighthouse Cafe. We took the opportunity to walk up to the sea walls that protect the entrance to the Richmond River. Some very large swells passing through which would have made the passage for small vessels very tricky.
After a magnificent lunch we reluctantly started to make our way back to Lennox Head. Strong onshore breezes had the hang-gliders in the air just sitting there in the sky enjoying the view as we approoached the finish - Colin
