Greens Bush-Cape Schanck.
Sunday 22nd July.
Leader Chris Spencer.
Fourteen walkers met at Greens Bush in great weather- a contrast to last week’s first leg of the Two Bays Walk. One minor false start, it seems there was a lack of communication between the leader and the whip! The walk took us through deep fern gullies, extensive clusters of Xanthoreas and forests of tall coastal banksias. Lots of very tame kangaroos came out to just watch us passing.
Beautiful undulating bush tracks and quite some steps particularly for those who ventured down to Bush rangers Bay for lunch. Only one walker was brave (mad) enough to go for a paddle across the very full-running creek – guess who? – Marty!
Dave, that actually wasn’t a short landing strip that you saw on the green hill near Highfields! I won’t mention the slightly dodgie conversation overheard between two male walkers at the tail-end of the group!
Thanks to Chris for organising a beautiful walk and to Helma, Louise, Greg and John who went early so that their cars were at Cape Schanck to carry us safely back to Greens Bush.
Congartulations to Louise who was the only driver who kept within the speed restrictions through the road works-we thought we had lost you!
