Minnie Water to Diggers Camp.
Because of the short driving distance, we decide to leave the camp set up at Illaroo and drive the walkers back from today's finish point and to tomorrow's start point. As well as saving several hours effort breaking and setting up camp, it means we can all walk together, except for Fons who is driving. No hot showers again.
More early morning photos.
The start point of Illaroo Campground as about 900 metres north of Minnie Water.
The track goes over the headland and onto Minnie Water beach.
Minnie Water is on a hill above the beach which has some shelter from a rocky reef for launching boats. A ship is visible on the horizon.
Shortly after leaving Minnie Water, Irene seems to need a rest.
From the headland we can see today's destination, Diggers Camp, in the distance at the end of Minnie Water Back Beach.
In addition to the Banksias and Pigface, we see some Flannel Flowers.
Off the beaches, the paths are mostly through coastal heath vegetation.
Many of the beaches we have walked are crossed by small creeks and seepages.
Approaching Diggers Camp.
Some of the group have a swim while others rest in the shade while we wait for Fons to arrive for the drive back to camp.
Back at Illaroo, Rob tries surfing in the Kayak.
As on most evenings, we spend some time sitting around a fire.
