We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week it was pouring with rain for most of the hike. We decided to investigate an old logging road that may run down the east side of the island to a smaall beach near North East Point. We mostly hiked along old and seldom used roads that are in good condition, but the distance down to the beach was greater than I had anticipated and we stopped for lunch at a spot still quite high above the sea. Perhaps we can try this route again sometime, but certainly it would be nicer to do so on a dry sunny day in summertime.
We have had a rather mild winter so far, so my wintertime photo today is one I took in February last year. This is a tiny creek that runs down the hillside above Gillies Bay quite close to the logging road up to Cap Sheaf Lake.
