Last weekend several family members joined in a walk from Ballina to Lennox Head (10 km). John, Claudia, Ian (Claudia's partner), our Briony, and myself, accompanied by our super-excited young dog (Radha). The latter was maybe not a brilliant idea (managing her bouncy energy was a bit exhausting in itself). Briony is one of Claudia's two lovely daughters; and at the same time she is one of my step-daughters. (Yes yes, I know, we have a complicated family. At least we all get on very well! )

Briony was great, dealing with Radha's indefatigable energy ...
|Being bounced on by a Radha in full flight is like being hit by a B57 bomber.|
Boundless joy of a young dog :-) Four-paw drive, covering at least six times what us paltry humans do!

It was a very pleasant walk and we ambled into Lennox Head about two hours after setting off. Having taken *heaps* of photos of the view of the headlands on previous walks, I didn't this time (but you can see some of those photos here). A yummy (but slightly greasy) lunch of fish and chips followed, and then back to base.
Thanks Catterall / McAdam family for a lovely walk! Oh, and Radha wasn't tired after all that. Sheesh!
