After positive reports from my doctor and a clean bill of health on the X-Rays I started my recovery from pneumonia this morning with an easy walk – one of my favourites on the NSW South Coast from Bannister Head in Mollymook to the end of Narrawallee Beach and back.
The walk takes about 1hr 15 mins at a relaxed pace. It starts with a cliff top walk along the headland with sweeping views north over the beach and towards Green Island up the coast. A bush track then leads down from Bannister Head Road to the beach.
This morning I went early and caught the perfect conditions – a low tide meaning a firm, flat beach to walk and a stunning sunrise light. It was a fitting way to ease back in and welcome the dawn of a new era after the sad news that my Grandpa (and last grandparent) passed in his sleep yesterday.
There were lots of walkers out and a bunch of surfers enjoying the swell in the northern corner of the beach who you can just make out in the photos below.
