Seventeen club members walked the cycle/walkway from Dalmeny to Apex Park, Narooma. The walk started out with overcast skies which apart for some very warm bursts of sunshine and humidity, remained so most of the way. We were shadowed by several whales some quite far out to sea but visible enough for us to enjoy their displays of breaching, tail flapping and spurts of vapour as we had morning tea on the grassy headland. A mother and calf swam nearer to shore and mum put on a lovely aerobatic show. It is indeed a great year for whale watching and appreciation.
As we neared the end of our walk we spotted a goose nesting amongst the reeds with two goslings. Lunch was at Apex Park where we found beautiful picnic tables and benches, luxurious facilities as we usually sit on fallen forest logs.
Thank you Lesley for organising the car shuffle and leading a pleasant walk along our lovely coast line.
