This was a substitute walk for today’s plus Salvation and Wallaroo Tracks walk. Chief scout, Elaine E was waiting for the arrival of walkers just before the toll booth to the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase NP with the news all tracks in the park were closed due to a total fire ban. The ten of us were eager to walk and after some discussion the general consensus was we drive to Palm Beach and walk to Avalon.

MORNING TEA was at The Bible Garden a delightful find in Mitchell Road Palm Beach.
