Last Walk

Lots of Christmas Bells
Lots of water
Saturday 22 December:8 walkers braved the weather and were rewarded with just the occasional light sprinkle, best waterfalls we've seen here, Christmas bells, orchids, flannel flowers and flowering angophoras. Very noisy cicadas, some pushy geese and ducks as we ate our lunch and the usual great human company. Thanks to all and best wishes to everyone. (Oh, and we reverted to meeting outside the gate of the reserve for this walk: parking fee is now $10/hr!)
Happy people

General News & Information

Next craft morning on TBA. Message Pam on 0407069736 if you are coming along.

Club member Jo-Anne Lee did a Kimberley tour with the following company this year and was very impressed with the couple running the show. Great value for money. They now have a new tour added to their offerings. See https://www.kimberleyoffroadtours.com/­our-tours/­

Article at bottom of page re ticks is very informative. Please read. Val does carry a can of stuff to freeze them off on walks, but depending on where you live you might like to obtain your own.

Deep (& Meaningful?) Thoughts from Members

people say "You only Live once" They are way off the mark, you Live every day and you only Die Once!!! Live and enjoy what we have. Dawn Carrington

Also people say life begins at 40 (or 50) but life begins at 0 and it is upwards for as long as you like

Tip: Don't say Dad Joke Anymore. Better to say Grandfather Joke. One step worse Ah, Ha, Ha, Greg!
