The first walk of 2016 starts at the little bay where the houseboats are 'parked' and goes through some bush past Quakers Hat before crossing Military Road and then on to The Spit. 

The walk is about 6kms with some very picturesque views. Parking is free and easy on Pearl Bay Avenue, meet at the bottom of the hill near Fig Tree Walk at 8am.

It has been quite a while, so there will be lots of  catching up to do. See you there.

BYE BYE 2015


For our last walk of 2015 we venture to West Ryde - a stomping ground for many of us - where Marg will take us up hill and down dale, through some bush tracks before coffee in the neat cafe near W Ryde Station, about 7 kms in total.

Meet on the corner of Herbert Street and Ryedale Road West Ryde at 8am for our last hurrah on the streets for 2015.

Looking forward to seeing in 2016 at Julie and Robert's - should be lots of fun.

Merry Christmas and health, happiness and peace in 2016.


PS We will resume walks in Feb........stay tuned.

Steve has discovered yet another way to enjoy our marvellous bushland close to the city. This is a new route around Balls Head and ends at the Coal Loader, and as repetetive as it may seem, we start at Woolcott St and Balls Head Road at 8am on Sunday.

There is an artisans market at the Coal Loader on Sunday so you may be interested in having a look at that. Steve and I will also be going to the Climate March in the early afternoon if anyone would like to join us.

Apologies for the late post but we have had computer problems since returning from Melbourne...

It was a great brunch last weekend, with a great bunch - hard to believe that we have clocked  another year of walks. Now onwards and upwards.

We return to Balls Head this Sunday for a 7km walk through the Reserve, and round the suburbs of Waverton and Wollstonecraft. There is not much off road walking after all this rain, but maybe wear your walking shoes in case any areas are very wet.

Meet on the corner of Woolcott Street and Balls Head Road Waverton at 8am.

Please let me know if you are coming - I can then SMS if it looks like rain.

It is our Sunday Brunch week and from the forecast we should be swimming not walking this Sunday.

We will however leave plans in place for a walk from our house at 8am, followed by brunch.

If it turns out to be raining on Sunday morning then we will still have brunch from 10am, if the weather is doubtful I will send round an SMS at 7.15am indicating if the walk is on.

See you either at 8am or 10am on Sunday. Please let me know what you will bring, just so we don't double up, thanks.

This Walk of about 6kms takes in some interesting territory, an old cemetry, plus Primrose Park at Neutral Bay has some nice views over Willoughby Bay. Last time we did this walk it started to rain so it will be nice to see it in some Sunday sunshine.

Meet on the corner of West and Amherst Streets Cammeray, plenty of on street parking.

It looks like the 8th November suits those who have replied for our end of year get together, so put that in your diary. Same as our previous brunches, bring a plate, have a walk, followed by a talk!.

See you on Sunday 8am,
