NO GO AREA!

AUGUST 9th  and 16th 

Steve and I will be MIA for a fortnight and this weekend is the City to Surf so there will be no walk. The following Sunday Aug 16th, Sue and Pete are kindly organising the walk so you will have an email from them in due course.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Harbour Sculptures walk last Sunday, great weather, fun walking and lots of very good sculpture, with a Harbour backdrop of course!

Take good care,
B.

SCULPTURES BY THE HARBOUR

WOOLWICH FOR SOME CULTURE

As Sculptures by the Harbour is on we thought to repeat one of our walks to take in the outdoor and indoor sculptures at Clark Park and the Deckhouse.

The Moocooboola Festival is also on but this is centred more on Hunters Hill than Woolwich so we don't anticipate any problems with parking .

Meet at Franki Avenue, near the Woolwich Pier at 8am.

Last Sunday was rather special - when Jillian, Steve and I found that we were the only walkers we decided to walk around the Quakers Hat route at Beauty Point......at exactly the same time a 65 ton southern right whale decided to frolic in Chinamans Beach and towards The Spit.  We were treated to an extended view of the whale up so close we could hear it breathing. What an experience.

Looking forward to Sunday.

EASTERN COAST

BRONTE TO BONDI

This week we take a change of scenery and walk from Bronte to Bondi, about 6kms.

The weather promises to be good so we may see some sparkling Sydney views, and it is whale season so who knows?

Meet on the corner of Nelson Ave and Bronte Road at 8am, bring some meter money in case parking is an issue. There appears to be lots of coffee houses at Bronte Beach......

Looking forward to catching up with everyone.

OOPS....NOT AGAIN

ANOTHER SLEEP IN

There are lots of our group out of town this weekend so we thought it prudent to have a sleep in this Sunday, especially as the weather will be very cold. Enjoy either the snow, or pictures of it.

NOT WIMPING OUT

NORTH SYDNEY, with a twist and turn.......

We revisit Kirribilli and North Sydney with a few new twists and turns. A little history teaser on this route........can you name the park from which Kingsford-Smith used to fly his planes?

Meet on the corner of Broughton Road and Willoughby Street, Milsons Point at 8am. This walk is about 5kms with some hills and steps just to keep us on our toes.

Meter money for parking might be needed, fingers crossed for no rain and slightly higher temps.

WIMPS



Wimping out this Sunday............Sydney temps are predicted to range from 0 - 6 degrees in the morning, brrrrrrrr. Go for a walk in the middle of the day once the sun has come out and we have thawed a bit.

Let's hope it is a bit warmer by the next week.
