TOO DARN HOT


WAY TOO HOT

We have rather reluctantly decided to be sensible this Sunday and cancel our walk. We couldn't find another short shady walk, and didn't want to have people melting, so, as good as it was to see everyone last Sunday we will have to wait.......


Steve and I will be away skiing in US from Feb 18th to March 7th so we will be asking for volunteers to lead the walk during that time. Any takers?

2017...THE ADVENTURE BEGINS

CASTLE COVE

Who the heck is........HAROLD REID?

To start the year we will take a hike around Harold Reid Reserve, Castle Cove. 

This is a very pretty and interesting bush walk, a bit shorter than our usual walks but if we want to walk for coffee afterwards that will add another 1km. Those with lunch dates will be finished in plenty of time to get home and prepare, others might linger over coffee at Dose Espresso at Willoughby (near Harris Farm Market on High Street).

Meet at 8am at the end of Sugarloaf  Crescent, Castle Cove, plenty of on street parking, the pathway is cleverly disguised - this is one of those lovely 'hidden treasures' in our midst.


Cheers,

Bernadette.

TRAM SHEDS

TRENDY TRAM SHEDS AT FOREST LODGE.

The old Tram sheds at Forest Lodge are newly opened and worth a visit. There is a variety of different food outlets and some shops, the development has been done very well. The single tram was found in a backyard on the Northern Beaches and has been restored, quite quaint, especially as most, if not all the others were destroyed by fire some years ago in the railway museum at Thirroul.

We shall start the walk at a different location to the map in the link - in Chapman Road, behind the PetO shop which is easily spotted as you come along The Crescent, Annandale (turn at the small roundabout where there is a kink in The Crescent). There should be plenty of free on street parking behind PetO.

This will be our last walk before going into recess until Nov 27th. If anyone wants to organise a walk during that time please email and see who is available, otherwise.....

Hasta la vista!!

SCULPTURE AT SAWMILLERS 2016

SAWMILLERS RESERVE

The third Sculpture at Sawmillers begins this weekend so we thought a visit was in order.

The marathon is being held in Sydney and we wanted to avoid the CBD so we will meet on the corner of Woolcott Street and Balls Head Road. This  means we can revisit that little cafe which is always so welcoming.

PYRMONT CALLING

It has been ages since we walked in  Pyrmont and  Blackwattle Bay, this Sunday we remedy that.

Meet on the corner of Mount Street and Refinery Drive Pyrmont. You will need parking meter money this week. 

Weather forecast is fine for Sunday so looking forward to another sparkling morning walk.
