    Kara Skene Can’t wait to eventually do this hike.

  • Day 2 was tough walking, a few Km’s along the soft sandy beach. This was made easier when we found 20+ seals playing the bay, it was great to see them breaching and surfing the waves.
    The remainder of the walk was mostly along cliff tops, so very rocky under foot, most of your time is spend watching were you place your foot and not so much admiring the scenery.
