The Entrance, Central Coast, N.S.W.

28 kilometres (17 miles) from home base now, after the couple hours spent by Soldiers Beach,  I'd then continued on to The Entrance. 
 
and after a long walk around the foreshore, it's right here where I bought my little folding chair, thermos/treats, and enjoyed a refreshing breeze

sitting under this old casuarina (she-oak)
 
 and in the other direction

 islands spotted in the distance when walking
 
  
 the seagull had been paddling in the water and decided to come up and see if I had any handouts I guess
 
view over the fence
 

 a long way out
 

 having the time of their lives it looks like
 
 
I did see lots of people fishing along the shore but I didn't take photos of them; thought they might get a bit touchy.  Besides it was birds I was hoping for and yes I did pick up some decent ones that I'll share over the next few days.

A nice looking quiet spot except I think the jet skies and motorboats might annoy me some. Blogger working fine for me this morning; hopefully it sorted itself out for you by now.

Great Gull shot! Looks like a fun place to boat, fish and watch for birds.

I would like to paddle out to one of those islands and camp there overnight. Then paddle back to the mainland and hike for several days into those mountains I see in the distance. Looks like a beautiful area.
