Wednesday 12 August 2009 - Coba Point

A quick opportunity to get out on a beautiful day, with Chris, Toby and Stephe managing to work their way around the various other things to do on the day - to check out the hills and wildflowers that make up Coba Point.

Parked the car at the end of the road, then meandered out for a quick out and back to the lookout (eschewing the 'proper' out and back to the end of the ridge...). We then came back past the cars once more, and headed off to Smugglers Ridge. The flowers were fantastic the entire way - with Chris' need for the occasional stretch giving us plenty of time to check 'em out.

Over the end of the ridge and down the drop was fun as always, and then back along the bottom to the base of the climb out. At which point Toby's legs started cramping up - putting him in just the right frame of mind for the climb out, eh.

In any case, he made a very fine effort on the hills, particularly for a man with both legs cramping - and only just behind Chris and Stephe with no such challenge.

Photos up here, and .kmz is here.
