MAKINS CREEK MYSTERY WALK
A great turnup of 17 walkers met at Dalmeny for a wonderful walk led by Jan Thomas and Kerren Ogg. This walk had it all with some scrambling over timber and some rocks along small bush paths,in and out of dry creek beds and through rainforest gullies with magnificent trees. Exploring this area was very special even stumbling upon old gold mine shafts and some amateur alluvial gold mining equipment. We only walked a little over 5 klms in a small area but it showed us all you don't have to trek many klms to have memorable walk. Steve thanked the leaders for putting this walk on and we managed to head for home just as the weather was changing.
Saturday, last day of winter, saw seven Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers headed for Moruya Markets and a walk along the Moruya River. An earlier than usual start as the walk leader Maggie Finch did not want to miss any bargains, they met in Moruya near the hospital to start the walk. A nice pathway led them to the markets, coffee, ideas on what to buy on their way back, they started walking along the edge of the Moruya River. Sun was out, casuarinas spilling over the track, a very enjoyable walk as far as they could go, here the walkers had morning tea. Then an easy stroll back passing bigger casuarinas and pine trees, back to the markets. A stroll through, bread, chocolate, daffodils, plants, were bought. Out the other side, lunch beside the river where Maggie was thanked for the easy 7km walk.
