Yet the rain was not so bad: the day was warm, and we were in beautiful rainforest surroundings.
|The path crossed the creek many times.|
|Green everywhere. Green leaves, green moss. Gorgeous!|

With my limited knowledge of rainforest habitats I was able to point out a few features to X, such as strangler figs living their parasitic life on another tree, and luxuriant layers of moss growing on fallen timber.
The lookout consisted of a wooden platform built in the side of the hill.

We wandered back to the camp ground, and sheltered from the rain in the communal camp kitchen where we checked the weather reports. Wet weather all along the New South Wales coast meant that we needed to move further inland to stay dry.
Staying in Sheepstation Creek would be lovely, but it was simply too wet to go on longer hikes with the kids.
After some research and deliberation, we decided to break camp and fossick for Sapphires.
