We meet at the Ballpark at Gillies Bay at 10.00am
Last week we just had a very small group of hikers and started hiking from the Ballpark instead of driving somewhere. A gale was predicted and the weather was certainly quite overcast and showers were predicted. However, it remained dry and calm all morning and afternoon and he we had a pleasant walk through the forest to Cap Sheaf Lake.
My photo for this week was taken on the first hike this month when we had a lovely day and lunched on a bluff above the sea just in front of a quite rustic abandoned cottage. Eagle Creek reaches the sea at the foot of the bluff and it was odd to see clusters of ice on the rocks where the low waterfall cascades onto the shingle beach. That day the tide was very high and the beach under water, but on earlier visits we were able to walk on the beach and lunch on the logs.
The waterfall where Eagle Creek reaches the sea, and where the tops of some beach rocks had collected curious clumps of ice.
