We were up early this morning so that we could leave by 9:30 so that we could get to Johanna Beach before high tide.
We started from Aire River. We passed a school group and also another couple. That was the most people we had seen on the track so far.
I almost stepped on a brown snake! It was quite large but fortunately moved very quickly out of the way. Then within another couple of hundred metres we saw another one which we think was tiger snake. It did not seem in a hurry so we just had to stand very still and wait until it headed back into the bush. Very scary! We were quite jumpy for a while.
Lots of great views from lookouts today including Castle Cove. Also saw the first pink heath and lots of grass trees.
Finished the day with quite a long walk on Johanna beach through very soft sand again until we came to the Johanna River. The sand was much firmer walking along the banks of the River which ran along the back of the beach. We had to wade through the river before heading up the hill towards the campsite. We started to walk up to the cottages until Eric picked us up at 1:30
