Bev and I went for an early walk to Turner's Beach and Clarence Head. The South-Westerly wind and a moderate swell made a spectacular surf.

Marg and Fons have a well setup camper. Here they are with Olive after breakfast.

Rob, Bev, Olive and I decided to look at the museum while Marg and Fons drove to Ballina to pick up Carol and Irene. We found the museum closed (only open in the afternoon on Sundays) so we went for a walk to Yamba beach and Clarence Head.

Below is Yamba Beach. The large white building at top centre is the Pacific Hotel where we are all planning to meet for lunch.

Irene and Carol, the final members of the group arrive and we have lunch together at the Pacific Hotel. The restaurant has great views over the sea.

The walk starts tomorrow and Rob, Bev and I decide to drive to Angourie to see the starting point of the walk. Due to the difficulties of getting vehicles to the next camp-site, we will be walking most legs in reverse to meet the other walkers and then return with them so we wouldn't otherwise see Angourie.

We finish the day relaxing and watching the last of the sunset.
