Rosedale Ramble

Brilliant south coast winter morning for our walk exploring tracks & trails around Rosedale.

As we started our walk along Rosedale  Beach the rocky outcrop that is  Jimmies Island looked amazing against the blue sky and calm blue sea. The cameras came out and photos were taken. Heading north along the coastline we discovered a sea cavern and a great variety of rocky outcrops and quartz pipes, time to keep watching ones footing. A white heron was spotted stalking a meal in the distance. Our leader, who is very familiar with this area took us on tracks, trails  and steps only known by locals, giving us glimpses of some very unique architecture and interesting gardens.

Morning tea was taken while sitting  in the sun and watching holiday makers enjoying our beautiful beach. Then off again along the tracks up and down over the hills and through the bush to finish our walk back at our cars.

Thank you Ian for leading us on this lovely 5km easy scenic walk.

Easy Route to Durras Mountain

The group of 4 started out with a larger group of walkers to ascend Durras Mountain before splitting off to continue a shorter walk. This was a special occasion as leader Val has decided after leading about 166 club walks and numerous back packs over many years that it was time in the future to follow rather than lead. Thank you Val for the happy and interesting walks you have led for our club.
