Cyclone Ita spent
Crisp morning air
Clear, vivid blue skies
Warm, sweat free days
Glistening aqua sea
Feelings of unlimited energy
So fortunate to have just spent 3 nights at Tweed Heads to enjoy the blissful days of mid Autumn. The coast really threw up some spectacular days for me to luxuriate in. They even tossed in a full moon, solar eclipse, and stunning sunrise and sunsets.
Thankfully my Wednesday walkers were happy to meet me here, and after coffee and bun, we drove a short distance to just north of Kingscliff.
On setting off we followed the footpath, but this view beckoned us to the beach.
Once we reached Kingscliffe [seen in distance] we reluctantly had to leave the beach and return to the footpath.
Whilst crossing Cudgen Creek, we spied Mt Warning in the distance. It is on our bucket list to achieve.
The path was continuous after crossing the creek to just before Cabarita Beach. To our left was a green belt through which we could see and hear the sea. To the right, a modern well planned housing development, but the strip for the pathway was a leafy 50 metres wide and dotted with sculptures, access to the beach, showers and resting benches.
Before I found a special spot for my lady bird, Jenny shared 3 Lindt chocolate lady birds with us. I was going to keep mine BUT the day was hot!
A final beach walk completed the 15 km's to Cabarita. A delicious lunch was finished just in time to catch the bus back to Kingscliff and coffee with a good friend of Margots.
We all agreed that 'Walking Down Under' at this time of year, most definitely gives one that "glad to be alive" feeling!
I love having you along. Please comment if you have enjoyed the read.
