DOUBLE & ROSE BAYS

FURTHER EAST............

 An 8km walk from Double Bay to Rose Bay, then a bus ride after coffee, sounds mighty good.

Meet at Double Bay ferry wharf, Bay Street at 8am. On street parking is free on Sunday. Last time we did this walk we caught the ferry on the return journey. The new timetable has cut this ferry out so we are bussing it back to Double Bay, bring either your money or bus ticket with you!

This is such an interesting walk and it is meant to be fine on Sunday :-).

AGAIN AND AGAIN.............

HUNTLEY'S COVE LOOP.............

The weather worked against us last weekend so we will try again this Sunday, Val and Robert will be the fearless leaders as Steve and I are in Melbourne for the weekend. The forecast is for cloudy weather with the possibility of light showers, much more promising than last week.

Here are the details, have fun!

This Sunday we explore Huntley's Cove - a 5km walk taking us past 2 schools, Riverside Girls and Joeys. There will be lots to see, some bush and water views as well.  All good track this week.

Park in Gladesville Road, between Ryde Road and Matthew Street, we will meet on the corner of Matthew St and Gladesville Rd at 8am. Val reports there is good coffee nearby so we don't have to scout around.

HUNTING AROUND..AGAIN

HUNTLEY'S COVE LOOP

This Sunday we explore Huntley's Cove - a 5km walk taking us past 2 schools, Riverside Girls and Joeys. There will be lots to see, some bush and water views as well.  All good track this week, especially with the forecast of rain.

Park in Gladesville Road, between Ryde Road and Matthew Street, we will meet on the corner of Matthew St and Gladesville Rd at 8am. Val reports there is good coffee nearby so we don't have to scout around.

I will be back walking the streets again on Sunday, let's hope the rain stays away because I have been sorely missing the company and exercise. 

See you then.

MEN ARE FROM MARS..........WITH BUFFALOS!

FIELD OF MARS AND BUFFALO CREEK

A familiar area for most of us to drive by, but how many of us have ventured into the Field of Mars Wildlife Refuge and Cemetery?

This walk will be about 8kms and take in Boronia Park Oval, part of Buffalo Creek Reserve and a wander through Field of Mars, it looks very interesting. 

Gotta love this city!

Meet in Princes Street, near the intersection with Pittwater Road, a few coffee spots to choose from here.

WHO KNOWS?

LINDFIELD PRECINCT................expect the unexpected.

This Sunday we will walk the great unknown, no idea if there are steps, it appears there will be bush tracks, maybe hills.....................there has been no reconnaissance, so there may be surprises.

It certainly sounds interesting walking through Seven Little Australians Park and then along Two Creeks Track, and we meet at Mack's Place.

8am at Mack's Place on the corner of Slade Ave and Tryon Road Lindfield. If no source of caffeine is found along the route we can drive to Lindfield Station afterwards.

BANTRY BAY & EXPLOSIVES RESERVE

THIS COULD BE EXPLOSIVE........in Castle Cove

Sorry for the late post, but we are most definitely walking on Sunday 27th July.

This walk (approx. 5.5kms) takes us round Castle Cove, into Explosives Reserve and along some foreshore track, and is abundant with wildflowers at present I am told.

Meet on the corner of Cammaray and Willis Roads in Castle Cove at 8am (note to all sat nav users - spelling of Cammaray differs from the suburb)

Steve will be on his Pat Malone as I am not yet fit to walk, I will come for coffee afterwards and hope that the weather is fine.

NOT THIS WEEK

Apologies for the late post but there have been several impediments, internet has been only available in Reception, which is in another building,  and then it is unreliable. The other impediment is my knee which I injured on our first day on the slopes ��.

Upshot is that it here is no walk organised for Sunday.  Kathy suggested a walk in Clarke Park at Woolwich where there is a sculpture exhibition but I haven't researched it, maybe the bush telegraph can work, or maybe we have a sleep in this week.

Look forward to seeing you soon and will try harder next week .
