Thursday 22 March
To recap - Day 1 was with the kangaroos and koalas.
Day 2 was hiking in the rain and jumping in puddles.
On day 3, I offered to drive a friend to Cabarita to visit a friend for the day. My plan was to sit on Norries Headland with a coffee, to recover from the drive down, and then to take myself hiking along the coastline.
Cabarita was where, back in mid-February, when camping with my friends Jocelyn and Leanne, I watched the sunrise from Norries Headland.
The pink glow of sunrise that morning.
Our sunrise viewpoint. I now realise the reason for the wooden tiers. Not for sunrise, but to whale watch from June to November. I will return.
Shortly before our arrival in Cabarita, the heavens opened, and I thought I might be sitting in the car with a book all day. The weather Gods were kind.
The view north, as I arrived at the headland with my coffee.
My viewpoint was just under the trees on the right.
It didn't take me long to decide that I really didn't have to force myself to spend the day hiking. Why not just stop and smell the roses. In this case, sit and watch the drama of the waves all day.
I did take a short 5 k walk. The arrow indicates the view of 'my spot'!
Coffee view - ominous.
Seagulls facing the wind, seen on my stroll.
Sunnier skies when I returned to my perch.
I was to collect my friend at 3pm. This rain cloud spotted at 2.30, had me wondering if I would have to make a dash earlier.
The gods were kind again, but we drove home in heavy rain, both feeling very contented with how our day had been spent.
Happiness is definitely sitting on a rock watching the waves all day.
I would love to read your comment.
