Jul-Dec 2017

Twenty walkers set out on a beautiful day to walk Narrabeen to Avalon. Not much to be said about this walk, except that it was a fabulous day, fantastic views of the headlands and oceans, and a great crowd pa rticipating, with a wonderful morning tea spot at Mona Vale. We did have a fly-past of 4 helicopters, and wondered how they knew we were there. Oh , and there were a few steps - and a few more - and a few more - and still a few more. However, success was rewarded with lunch and coffee at the end of the walk, and a pleasant bus trip back to the cars.
