Sally and Ann's Excellent Adventure 1 : The Beginning

Come with us on a 5 day, 50 kilometre walk from Barrenjoey Lighthouse to Shelley Beach at Manly. The aim was to swim in every one of the ocean pools along the coast: Palm Beach, Whale Beach, Avalon, Bilgola, Newport, Mona Vale, North Narrabeen, Collaroy, Dee Why, North Curl Curl, South Curl Curl, Freshwater, Queenscliff and Fairy  Bower.

First, a stop at West Head in Kuring-gai Chase National Park, to look out across Pittwater at our starting point: Barrenjoey Lighthouse on Barrenjoey Head (Sunday 6 January, 2013).

Kuring-gai was named after the Aboriginal people of the area, the Guringai, who owned the land from Port Jackson (Sydney Harbour) north across Broken Bay.
