Thank you to our walk leader Linda Kelen for organising a wonderful day's hike to Box Head through the Bouddi National Park (Central Coast).  After a pleasant ferry ride from Palm Beach to Wagstaffe we settled in for a coffee and croissant at the local cafe, then a group photo then up the hill to start our hike.  The scenery and views were stunning (as shown in the photos) as we made our way along the ridgeline to Box Head and the lookout.  To our amusement we spotted a 'seal' on the rocks below having a fun time in the water and then sunning itself on the rocks!  From Box Head we then made our way back to the turnoff to 'Little' Tallow Beach and then around to 'Big' Tallow Beach.  This was our lunch spot and where a few of our fellow hikers decided to brave the wild surf for a swim!  Thankfully all survived no rescue needed!  From Tallow Beach we then headed up the fire trail which took us back to suburbia and the Hardy's Bay RSL where we stopped for a well deserved 'recovery drink' whilst listening to the local band playing funky music!  From here we then made our way back to our starting point at Wagstaffe along the very picturesque shoreline reserve.  Fellow hikers included Leah, Len, Michele, Francoise, Linda Park, Richard, Bryan, Geraldine, Sarah, Eithne, Chris and Ben.
