    One of these beaches is a nudie. My lens wouldn’t get me close enough to see which one.

    On the way down I bumped into this magnificent specimen of a Lace Monitor (Varanus varius). He was on the track but quickly ran up a tree when he saw me. He was well over 1.5 metres and in great condition.

    That Island in the distance known as Cabbage Tree Island is the only known breeding place in the world of the Gould’s Petrel (Pterodroma leucoptera). This is on the endangered species list, but following a successful recovery and breeding programme it may soon be removed from the list. News in Science - Gould's Petrel may be off endangered list - 07/04/2000

    On the way home I walked across the dunes to take a few shots of Port Stephens. This area, at the southern base of Yaccaba, is known as the boulders.

    This lone Sooty Oyster Catcher (Haematopus fuliginosus) , like me, was looking for lunch. These are on the threatened species list though.

    I note a distinct absence of the Barebreasted mattressthrasher which is often quite abundant in that part of the world ... bit cool for them yet?

    I did notice a few schoolies about Wayne. I suspect that there will be a few mattressthrashers amongst that flock.

    The hike looks like so worth it for the views at the top. Wow! I can't wait to visit there someday. Good luck with the exercise program. Puurty birds too.
    Do sharks swim in the waters year round? Is it safe to swim in the water?

    My mates and I used to regularly go camping over at Shoal Bay when we were teenagers.
    Still have many fond memories.
    It's probably changed a bit since I was last there in about 1980.

    I have just found this thread. It is great!!

    I dont actually live in the town you can see. That is Nelson Bay. I live closer to the ocean, but my village is hidden between the heads and the lighthouse (Little Beach) on that shot.

    Always thinking about you. I knew you would like the shots. How good is that view south from Yackaba eh? I have never been up to the top of Tomeree, but will do so in the Autumn.. GLad you liked the shots.

    That will get you puffing and blowing. It isn't that steep, but it is a long slow climb.

    When we were kids we used to climb Tomaree, but there were no paths then, just a track that went right around on the ocean side, where the gun placements were.

    I was fishing just off there in the boat today and remarked to one of the blokes that the bottom gun emplacement would make a good camp. From there you could cast over the rocks easily.

    What were you fishing for? We only used to catch Slimey Mackeral, for bait, really close to Tomaree.

    Did you used to post on another forum with a name that could cure ear infections or tonsillitis?
