Thirteen Batemans Bay Bushwalkers were very happy to be out and about hiking in the bush behind Lake Tabourie on what was shaping up to be a glorious autumn day. The Sun was shining, the air was fresh and clean after all the recent rains and it was just good to catch up with friends again on the track.
The bushwalkers wound their way through the bush – along fire trails, mountain bike trails, two short stints on gravel roads and some smaller tracks down near the creeks which fortunately we were all able to cross without getting our boots too wet. The undergrowth was pretty thick which made the hiking very pleasant as it was all green and the burnt trees didn’t quite stand out as much.
No snakes to be seen but loads of cobwebs across the track and incredibly one very industrious spider had already spun a new web across the track for our return leg!
All in all a pretty straight forward 10.3kms hike with a few long slow hills to get the heart rate up and with the bit of humidity about we all enjoyed stopping for morning tea and lunch to cool down.
