They say ‘Forewarned is Forearmed’ and so 11 hikers set off on a Betty 11km hike that promised “walking around some fairly steep hills south of Batemans Bay”. True to her word this was a tough hike on some long steep hills but the views from the top were spectacular. We all agreed that few of us had seen the township from these vantage points which made the slog all the more rewarding. Betty said she added a 2km section to the hike to avoid one extremely steep hill climb which she showed us from the top looking down. The photos will hopefully do justice to the climb we didn’t have to do. The hike ended close to the Batemans Bay Cemetery which drew obvious black humour comments from a group of very tired walkers. We all agreed this was a good workout and worth the effort. Well done to Betty for such an interesting, yet tough walk.
