Jan-Jun 2021

Eighteen walkers turned up at the meeting place - some after some difficulty - to complete the first Regular walk of the year. The previous days had engendered much concern, re showers, rain, storms etc. However, the hardy souls who turned up found a humid cloudy day. The humidity was eased by the fact that much of the walk was by the water.

The walk began with a street walk from North Shelley to the lake, where we joined the joint walk/bike path. Morning tea was at Long Jetty, complete with its historic photos.

The sun saved itself for the final ascent up the sand to the steps back to the cars.
