Diggers Camp to Wooli
A smoky haze from bushfires burning off to the South West, is visble out to sea this morning.
Rob, Bev and I drive to Wooli and walk North to meet the others walking south. Fons is organising sites at the Solitary Islands Marine Park Resort at Wooli.
Wooli beach makes up most of the distance and much of it is rather soft sand.
We come across a dead turtle.
Grass and ripples in the sand make some interesting patterns.
Time to break for a snack.
From the beach we seem some whales breaching well out to sea. We climb the dunes for a better look but only see some spouting.
We expect to meet the rest of the group along the beach, but we don't see them until almost at the Northern end of the beach. They have spent a lot of time watching for whales.
Bev returns to Wooli with Marg, Carol, Olive and Irene while Rob and I continue to have a look at Wilsons Headland at the Northern End of the beach.
In this view from Wilsons Headland, you may be able to make out the rest of the group part way along Wooli Beach with Wooli in the distance.
Rob and I stop at a viewing platform and see some more whales, but they are too far away to photograph.
Another view looking back towards Wooli.
This lagoon is behind the Northern end of Wooli beach.
Wooli is the end of our walk. The caravan park includes free use of kayaks and canoes and we make use of them. Bev and I take a canoe, Olive takes a Kayak and Marg and Carol use their own Kayak. We spend a pleasant hour paddling on the river in the late afternoon sun. No photos as I wasn't game to take the camera in the canoe.
The hot showers (at last) at the caravan park are very welcome and we enjoy relaxing beside the river before dinner at the bowls club.
Tomorrow we will go our separate ways; some, including Rob, Bev and I, returning home, while others will stay a little longer.
