We have been having a great time with Trish and the kids. They arrived in MacLean and stayed onboard overnight and the next day we sailed back to Iluka. We went under the bridge again and anchored without incident in the Iluka harbour. Barry took Trish over to Yamba that afternoon and she took the bus back to MacLean and returned with the Land Rover. She brought all the bikes with her, so today we went on an expedition.

We actually found the rain forest path and biked 2.5 km through the rain forest to the beach. Trish pulled June in the bike cruiser and Quinn rode his pedal bike. He is not even four yet and can ride the bike almost independently, he just needs help getting started and then off he goes. I rode Trish's new bike and had a blast winding in and out of the vines in the rain forest. When we got to the beach there were lots of shells and there was a rocky landing with tide pools to explore. It was a grand expedition.
