Letting the Pictures Tell the Story

Friday 21st August 2015

semi-overcast 14 °C

We woke up this morning having had a good nights sleep. We had breakfast at the cottage before going for a walk to explore the cliff top and town. It was a little bit chilly but pleasant enough. We walked down the end of our road and onto the cliff path and past the lighthouse.

The cliffs were quite heavily eroded and there was one large rocky island that we saw and took photographs of.

The path followed the line of the coast, sometimes quite flat and level, and others more up and down. I had to chuckle at some of the signs along the Australian coast warning of the danger of going to near the cliff edge.

We walked on until we got to an obelisk built to warn local shipping. It was now fenced off as a safety measure. There were also meant to be one or two blow holes. We were not quite sure where they were and if we did see them they certainly didn't have any sea water coming up through them.

There was another more modern monument and a viewpoint which gave a great view of the coast. after this we turned towards the town past a long jetty and around the lake/ Marina.

By this time we were getting quite hungry and decided to try a local cafe where we could also access the Internet. The food was really good, I had a home made chicken burger and Nigel had a really nice chicken and leek pie. We both felt full and knew that this would see us through so that we would only want a light supper. On the way back to the house we stopped at the bakers for some bread getting back just before it started to rain. We enjoyed some quiet time for the rest of the day, did some washing and tidied things up a little bit in preparation for our departure in the morning.
