While I was in New Zealand Rick told me that he and the family would be going out of town the weekend I returned. They were traveling about 6 hours south to attend a birthday celebration for a lifelong friend so I tried not to take it personally that they left the day after I returned :-)…..
After I left the beach I decided to walk up to the lighthouse. The path to the lighthouse begins on the beach on the bay side. The beach on this side is much smaller and the water is much calmer, but it’s still very pretty…..
The hike to the lighthouse is short but steep. As you start up you get a great view of the bay and once you get closer to the top you get an excellent view of the narrow, and quite beautiful, peninsula….
The view at the top of the Tasman Sea and Broken Bay are really beautiful….
After a while I returned to the car and drove back to Mona Vale where I stopped at the grocery, picked up some food and made a nice “surf & turf” for dinner…..
It was another really good day….and all within 30 minutes of Mona Vale. Yeah, Rick and his family live in a pretty great area. 🙂
