On a windy, overcast, but still warm day, we met Jeremy, who with his friend Alex was kite-surfing at Dee Why Beach.
We stood and watched them for ages - looked difficult, but lots of fun!

Tuesday 9 January was so hot - it reached a maximum of 43 degrees - that in the afternoon we retreated to the airconditioned cinema at Collaroy.
It's a lovely example of 1930s art deco 'ocean liner' style.

|Pelican Head ?|
At the ocean pool at Mona Vale we encountered this pelican. A local later told us there are three which live there. This one was very keen on being as close to the fisherfolk as possible - an easier way to "catch" breakfast than doing it for yourself!
Then it went for a stroll around the rock platform outside the pool.

Looking south from Mona Vale headland. Bongin Bongin Beach is the first one, then the Mona Vale ocean rock pool (we;ll visit there tomorrow), Mona Vale Beach and Turimetta Head in the distance. The large white boxy building is Mona Vale hospital.

In Melaleuca St, Bungan Head, a stand of melaleucas (paperbark trees) hosts some Christmas decorations and kids' play equipment.
There's even a rung on the ladder marked out for me!

Perfect walking conditions for the longest day of our walk - we covered approx 16 kilometres from Whale Beach to Bungan. These pics are taken at Bilgola Head.
Top: The view south: Bilgola Beach, with pool on the rock platform at the southern end. The larger beach to the south is Newport, after Bilgola South Head.
Left: The view north with Avalon Beach, and Avalon Head. The higher headland in the distance is Bangalley.
