Left Peaceful Bay this morning and met Bella the Roo with her Joey in the pouch. Had to skip Parry Beach due to it being all flooded. Got dropped off by Hugh at Williams Bay. Set off me and Steve nice and steady and was hit straight away with a cracking incline. The thighs and calfs were burning like mad. Saw a Wedge Tail Eagle circling above us looking for food, loads of little birds attacking it protecting their nests. The weather is warm so Steve mentioned we would probably see snakes today, so to watch where we put our feet. We wind round and round, up and down the sandy track. Some cracking views of the coast line. A few boggy sections we got through. We'd been about an hour and a half then wow, along a small private track the led straight to the beach. No one in view, then Steve spotted a swimmer, so we stood and watched a little while taking pictures of the ocean waves. Spotted where we needed to be heading, it was a small climb on the these wooden stairs. Back on the track now which led us in to thick over grown bush. Steve said to make as much vibration with your feet and hope the snakes move because we couldn't see where we was putting our feet. As soon as this was mentioned my adrenalin upped. The track has been very strange, it's not just straight forward. One minute you feel like you've looped round and are back tracking, messes with your head. We followed the windy track along a field of cows (they all had their eye on us). I looked at the map and we were at the foot of Mount Hallowell. Me and Steve started the incline and it was well mapped out with steps and rocks. We were eating the incline right up, Steve started to get a bit of hayfever due to all the different plants and flowers about. We were climbing these huge rocks called Monkey Rocks. It felt like we were in a zoo enclosure. We got to the top in no time and was met with some fantastic views. We had a bite to eat at the top but was interrupted by March Flies (hurts more than a bee sting). We both started the decline down but it was hard as it was not marked out well. We followed a few cairns that people had set out. We even saw an arrow made out of wood and stones guiding us in the right direction. Once we got back under the canopy of the trees it wasn't long till a Tiger Snake crossed straight in my path (bloody hell did I jump back). A beautiful pale brown top with a bright yellow bottom. Me and Steve s*** ourselves. Climbed down a few more trees then BANG, I was face to face with a Tiger Snake, it was a full size adult. I jumped back and it started to come up the rock towards us both. Steve stepped to the side and started taking pics, I on the other hand was running back up the hill in a frenzy. Steve said the coast was clear so that was it for me, injury or no injury I'm out of here. Got a very quick march down and soon was back on flat ground where we wasn't so vulnerable. We were very close to Denmark now as we crossed Ocean Road. Came along side the Anderson Lagoon and saw loads of Pelicans just chilling on Honeymoon Rocks. Steve pointed out a Kite Eagle then within minutes of that an Offspray Eagle. We'd made it to Denmark and to The Cove were Susan & Iliah were putting us up. What an impressive place they have. Susan mentioned that because of a slight mix up they wasn't able to put us up so some friends down the road offered to help out in their granny flat. Well if this is a granny flat I would be more than happy to live here full time. Pulled up to an outstanding house on stilts, nestled in to the trees. We were introduced to Karen & Greco. They showed us round and let us shower, all open view could see the birds and trees whilst showering. Karen had made us a nice coffee in their house. We chatted for a good hour or so. What interesting people who had lived all over. Karens an English teacher who also writes in her spare time. Greco is a retired Paediatrician and was full of fantastic stories. Greco showed us round his garden and they have an outside Korean bath surrounded by glass, what a life these awesome people live.This trip I've met some outstanding people, I will treasure this for a lifetime and also pass on. We went in to Denmark and had Grilled Snapper with salt and pepper prawns, tasted devine. Now I'm just laid on my bed in the attack of the granny flat.
