Bouddi National Park bushwalk #1

On the Central Coast this weekend ...

Maitland Bay was the destination.

 steps, lots of them 


cycads/burrawangs in background

the angophora is hugging a unique cave-like boulder.  It's almost like it's stopped it in it's tracks, preventing it from rolling any further downhill

a side-step from the main pathway, and some views


yep .. it's the ocean

 angophoras

and turpentines at the fore.

Those angophoras are neat trees! I like the big one holding the boulder! I laughed at the "No Unclad Bathing"! I guess that's a nice way of saying no skinny dipping.

Beautiful pictures Carole, I think there are very special trees in your country.
This kind of trees you see here is not in the Netherlands.
Also a beautiful landscape.
Greetings Irma

"No unclad bathing". I've not seen it termed like that before. You folks down under are so funny. Love the gnarly shapes of those trees.

What interesting trees! I love the path! Does it lead to the no unclad bathing beach? ;0)

Barb .. it does lead down, down, down lots of steps - to the beachfront; coming up next post.
