Australia 2012: Day 6 – North Head to Palm Beach

Today Steve’s aunt Lynda took me for a drive north of Manly, stopping first at North Head for a bush walk along the rocky coastline, high above the crashing surf. Great views further north as well as back to the city. We continued driving, passing one perfect sandy beach after another, finishing at Palm Beach for an exceptional fish and chip lunch. This area is full of pricey houses much like I imagine the US version would be and the winding roads going up and down the cliff side offer spectacular water views at every turn.
Back at Lynda’s house, we watched a bush turkey hard at work trying to assemble a nest from lawn debris in the neighbor’s yard while we waited for the kettle to boil. Lynda and I found lots of genealogy topics to chat about all day; she has done tons more work than I connecting images to illustrate people in her family tree.
After a drink and chat with Steve’s parents (and Claire, who was back from the hotel), we arranged for tomorrow’s visit to the farm. It will be an early start.
