Presented with a plate containing steak, grilled mushroom and chokoe, which will you eat first and which last? Are you an instant or delayed gratification type?
This loop walk has a little bit of everything: headland views, beach stroll, coastal heath, forest, lily pond, a creek … and bitumen road.
After parking the car, we face the big decisions – make a dash straight to the sunny beach to start our walk, or do we get the suburban street slog done with first and finish seaside? Coffee at the Mullaway General Store to start, or after? A compromise is struck: coffee after, beach first.
As for the much maligned chokoe, I think I’d coat it in steak juice and smuggle it under the table to the dog.
