19 walkers started walking along the sand at MacMasters Beach, north around the headland to Copacabana Beach, and past Cockrone Lagoon.
We were then grateful to be off sand but faced the long, steady climb along Del Monte Place to Captain Cook Lookout on Tudibaring Head where we had morning tea.

We shared the lookout with a young man who alerted us to whales and dolphins below.
A helpful Council worker alerted us that the road was closed due to major excavation work. The resourceful leaders had recceed an alternative bush track from the lookout. The clifftop walk around to Winney Bay involved amazing concrete steps down and we diverted to look at the rocky bay. We then faced a steady uphill climb on a gravel road to the Avoca Water Tower. We decided to press on to lunch at Avoca beach. Concrete steps and a grassy path took us downhill to our lunch in the pavilion. We then proceed along Avoca Beach, returning to the cars near Avoca Lagoon.
