On Saturday November 11, we woke to a glorious day that provided perfect conditions for the above-mentioned walk. Only 19 people showed up, however, at the starting point in Maloneys Beach we were welcomed by a large number of kangaroos.
Mary led us across the beach towards Long Beach where we stopped for morning tea and snacks of course. Once rejuvenated, we proceeded up the hill into the surrounding forest. At 11 am precisely we stopped to honour our fallen soldiers with a minute of silence. During this minute we remembered them in our own way, whilst enjoying beautiful sounds of the bush. After taking a few photos of the picturesque surrounds, we proceeded on our walk and enjoyed the fresh air, beautiful scenery, glorious weather and chatting along with a fantastic group of people.
One cannot help but feel sorry for people who could not/did not come along for this walk.
We are all grateful to Mary for the effort and for sharing this lovely location with us.
