Thursday saw 18 walkers met at Bingie Point to walk the Dreaming Track to Meringo and return. First heading south for a quick look at the coast, then turned north on the inland track towards Kellys lake. Morning tea at Grey rocks enjoying views up and down the coast. The walkers then headed along the beach, inland to Kellys Creek and up to Meringo, here the walkers enjoy watching a large pod of dolphins rounding school fish. They then returned via the beach to Honeymoon Bay, being too cold for a swim, they had a leisurely lunch. After a quick walk up to Mullimburra Point then back along the Bingie Beach to the cars where Steve Deck was thanked by the walkers.
Saturday was the annual wattle walk, the walkers like to do this every year. Only 4 walkers arrived at meeting point under cloudy skies. Once they started walking the sun came out. During the walk Jan Thomas walk leader explained a bit about the wattle, the walkers finding at least 4 different varieties of wattle in flower. A few species were found that had already gone to seed and others in bud. With the flowering varieties they were disappointed not to find as many in flower as previous years. The walkers still enjoyed a 9km round walk just west of Buckeridge Makins Creek area. Only a couple of walks left in the winter program, spring summer program is now available on the web site http://www.dalmenynaroomabushwalkers.info
