Jacinta and I drove over to Mount Ettalong for a short hike.
There wasn't any flowers but there were a lot of birds to be heard but not seen.
Highlights of the hike included:
The distorted shapes of the trees due to a number of factors such as, poor soils, large slabs of sandstone and salty air.
Great views towards the south over Pearl Beach, Lion Island and Broken Bay as well as view over Umina, The Box, Ettalong and Brisbane Water.
We walked to the top lookout first then meandered back taking short turnoff tracks. We sat for a while on an overhanging rock ledge and admired the view while soaking in the sunshine.
After the hike, we drove to Pearl Beach and had coffee on the beach then a snooze in the morning sun.
