It was beautiful day in Foster calm seas, light winds. We spent the morning kayaking around the river delta behind the township of Foster.
One Mile Beach trends south-southeast from Bennetts Head for 1.3 km to a prominent southern headland. The beach is backed by a vegetated foredune apart from a sand blow at the north end, with a golf course in the centre and residential development at both ends.
We started from the Northern end watched a young girl run up this 30m high sand dune about 5 times, I could at least get to the top once. We then had a very pleasant walk in the late afternoon sun before heading off to see if we could complete two beaches in a single day.
