Above - we have a cold drink at Berowra Waters and consider the best place to camp. We get some water and back track 20 minutes to the top of the last hill where there was a nice campsite and great rick platform. We farewell Laura, who is walking out to Berowra.

Above - the rock platform - a good place for a platter and some wine or port. Soon after Mitch joined us.

Above - dusk. As well as the Moon, Mercury is just visible. It is a tiny dot just to the left of the lower tree branch. The stars Sirius and Procyon can be seen on the left and in the middle.
