The surf was small. Boomerang had a bit of a wave in the south but they were very few and very far between.Cape Hawk
I drove to Cape Hawk lookout. It was a short but steep walk in the light morning drizzle to the top of the hill. The dampness made the walk a smellfest. Nice! At the top there was a steel view tower with excellent 360 degree views.

Forster/TuncurryThe surf at One Mile Beach was clean though barely breaking especially with the high tide.
Foster beach was even smaller. I had a swim in the rock pool.I drove to the Tuncurry Breakwater and walked along it part of the way. I had given up on a surf but North Wall was breaking so I hurried back to change and in I went. It was ½ to 1m reasonable rights in clean conditions. Heaps of fun!
After lunch, I drove to One Mile Beach. The surf had become wind blown. While there, I went on the short John Ward Rainforest Boardwalk.
WoottonI read a bit on the Wootton Historic Railway walk and was looking forward to a different cycle. After turning off the main road, I drove along a reasonable dirt road for 2km but the next 2km was on a deeply pot holed, rutted, mud pooled road. It took far ages to drive the 2km. The track started at a picnic area that was very run down. Signs pointed into a forested area for the walk/cycle. I walked part of the way but found the track heavily littered with leaves and once I the forest it was extremely difficult to ascertain which way to go. I decided to do another day.
I stopped at Bulahdelah for supplies then drove to Mungo Brush camping area. I met a nice couple from Barcelona and Milan, who were returning home the day after tomorrow. I also met a nice elderly couple who were prawning that evening. They had some great stories to tell.
