A flat easy walk. I had the two kids with me on this one. It ended up being a great family day out, stopping along the way for swims and family photos.

A nice fun walk and something a little bit different. It was cool being able to see the city across the water.

Nice walk, good for bird watching. Amazing that people lived on the island years ago! Beware of stone fish!
