August 9th...we are still at Byron Bayb
|Lighthouse from the Walking Track
We have had a great morning walking up to the Cape Byron Lighthouse. The walking track took us through the coastal bush sometimes overlooking the ocean with all its wonderful views including a few whales surfacing. The view of the mountains was distinctive as Mt Warning dominated the range. The only lengthy stop on the way up was on the actual Cape Byron Point which is the most easterly point of Australia.
|This is as far east as you can go!!
We enjoyed a cup of coffee at the Lighthouse Cafe then returned to camp along the last section of the loop. There are over 700 steps along the track..must be good for my leg muscles!
This evening we enjoyed drinks over looking the ocean at sunset..what wonderful pale colours. Di & Peter Smith had joined us as they are camping a little way south of Byron Bay. At 6.00pm we all walked down to the Beach Restaurant overlooking Clarke's Beach. A great night of friendship and good food was thoroughly enjoyed.
