Edible delights

Photo: View from Honeymoon Lookout

We went back to the Prince Henry Cliff Walk and started where we finished the day before, at Honeymoon Lookout. The views are great and the vegetation on this section varied and interesting – blue mountains ash, lots of casurina, banksias, king ferns clustering near a little creek, colourful fungi in the leaf litter and a patch of swamp before popping out at the Cliff Drive near Solitary Restaurant which serves great food. We savoured a leisurely lunch at their kiosk before retracing our steps.

I still haven’t completed the whole of Prince Henry Cliff Walk. I’ll save up the rest for some time in the future.

Words to walk with:
From Mushrooms by Sylvia Plath


“Soft fists insist on
Heaving the needles,
The leafy bedding …

We are shelves, we are
Tables, we are meek,
We are edible”

Nudgers and shovers
In spite of ourselves.
Our kind multiplies:

We shall by morning
Inherit the earth.
Our foot's in the door.”
