Bushwalkers going virtual ?

The Batemans Bay Bushwalkers have had to hold their AGM as a virtual meeting this year, but it hasn’t stopped them getting out and about and walking and recognising three members who have been with the Club for over 25 years -  Karen Cockerill, Ainslie Morris and Mike Reynolds. While the Club is celebrating their longevity and the work they have done for the Club, a real celebration will have to wait until they can all meet together again.

Above: Ainslie Morris and Mike Reynolds Walks this past week were both on the Bingie Dreaming Track – with one group completing an Easy circuit of 2.5 kms from the Bingie Bingie Headland, while another group of thirteen walkers left earlier in the morning to complete a 10 kms circuit towards Coila Lake and the neck at Tuross. Both groups were fortunate to see whales on their walks and one member was particularly excited with finding a “Wedding Bush” (Ricinocarpus Pinifolius) plant beside the track which she explained is quite rare in this area.  The smaller group on the Easy circuit were privileged to be in the company of Ainslie Morris and Mike Reynolds sporting their 25 year anniversary badges. Walkers were keen to hear of their adventures as they have been leading walks every quarter – 90 of them over the past 24 years! But they are best known for their bushwalking camps and safaris.
