Had breakfast and Mimi told me of a coastal walk that leads into the next town of Lennox Heads....she said it was really a great hike...so I packed up and was out of the house by 10am...walked 5 minutes from the house on this path
and I was at the beach
I found the track on the headland
Before I show you the next photographs I want to tell you that last night after Mimi and Kevin got home from the movie we sat around and talked and the conversation drifted to all the surf beaches and Mimi told us that they get at least one or two deaths each year from sharks...
So on the first head land I look back and watch the surfers and take this photo!!
Nothing unusual right?? WRONG!!!
Yes it is a photo of surfers
Fortunately these are dolphins but see how close they are to the surfers and they are surfing themselves!!!!
The hike was lovely with many splendid opportunities to take some shots..
Looking back at the headland I had just come from!!
I have no idea why they call this beach above Boulder beach!!!
The headland I still have to climb
Getting closer to my destination
I have never seen one of these palm trees before with it's unusual fruit..
The next question for you to ponder is did I stop here and buy a double waffle cone with strawberry and vanilla???
Had my lunch here
Showered and got cleaned up and drove about 10 minutes to the bigger town in the opposite direction where I treated myself to fish and chips and then went to see this movie....

Dame Maggie Smith, a two-time Oscar� winner, recreates one of her most celebrated roles � the singular Miss Shepherd � in TriStar�s The Lady in the Van, Alan Bennett�s big-screen comedic adaptation of his own iconic memoir and honoured stage play. The tale is based on the true story of Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who �temporarily� parked her van in Bennett�s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. What begins as a begrudged favour becomes a relationship that will change both their lives. Filmed on the street and in the house where Bennett and Miss Shepherd lived all those years, acclaimed director Nicholas Hytner reunites with Bennett (The Madness of King George, The History Boys) to bring this touching, poignant, and life-affirming story to the screen.
