The short drive to the next camp site at Sandon River means we can all walk together and perform a car shuffle to get both vehicles to the camp site.

Marg, Olive, Carol and Irene will walk to Brooms Head while Fons, Rob and I drive to Sandon River, claim a camp site and return to Brooms Head, meeting the others for coffee before continuing together. Here we are ready to climb the headland at Brooms Head. I don't know the significance of the "Marry Me" words on the hillside.

All lined up on the headland, looking at the beach we have to walk, except for Fons taking photos.

Fons left their camper at Sandon River and drove back to Brooms Head with Rob, with the intention of later driving Rob back to pick up his car. Fons realises he will have to back the car and camper out of the camp site, back the camper in and unhitch to pick up Robs car and decides that he would rather walk part way with us then walk back to Brooms Head and drive Rob's car to the camp site.

Lunch on the beach - in the open as there is no convenient shade.

Approach Sandon River we see a couple sitting at a table. Coming close we see that their lack of movement is because they are sculptures. We find more of these around Sandon River.

This was a fairly short walk so some have the energy left to put the Kayak in the water for a paddle around.
