TWO WALKS IN THE SOUTH by David Maidment In the week before Easter two walks were held on the same day. The first was led by Maggie Finch to Black Lagoon a back water of Wallaga Lake and offshoot of Narira Creek. Six walkers undertook the 10 klms walk, leaving the cars at Keating Drive near the northern entrance to Bermagui . They walked north and inland through the spotted gum forest to Black Lagoon ,then along the southern shore and back via the Cobargo/Bermagui Road to the cars. It was a perfect day on Thursday and after the rainfall the bush was glowing in the clear light. It is a lovely walk and everybody thanked Maggie for putting this on. Meanwhile nine walkers went a little further south to Picnic Point in the Mimosa Rocks National Park. The walk was altered from what was intended due to road damage within the Park and high tide and washed out beaches making it impossible to walk very far north from Picnic Point. Anyway we made our way to a prominent spot a bit inland from the beach . It had expansive views to the north and south and it was a fine spot for a morning tea. After a bit of wander north confirming the reduced access, we made our way back to the Picnic Point Headland having a good explore. Jan and Steve gave us a good background into the geology of the area and we had a close inspection of some plant fossils embedded in the rock on the headland. Again it was a glorious day for a walk and after we made our way back to the cars, Davey was thanked by all of us for putting the walk on in an area he knows so well. It really is a pleasure to be out and about walking in these southern areas.
