We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
So far this year the Trekkers have been exceptionally unlucky with the weather on hike days. Last week was no exception with thick cloud and periods of drizzle all the time we were hiking. Although the cloud was thick, the cloud base was quite high at around 2,000ft so we decided to head for a viewpoint, hoping the clouds might thin out and give us a nice view at lunch time. We drove up to the High Road, then north and then down towards Pocahontas Bay parking on the new shortcut logging road not far from the bay. Hiking south on the old Pocahontas Main until we turned off on the right and up the spur road to Taylor Bluff. We had hoped for some improvement in the weather, but it was not to be and we sat high above Malaspina Strait seeing little beyond the roads and waterfront houses on the mainland side.
While the day was gloomy the group were not. Two hikers were recently returned from the Far East and entertained the others recounting their experiences in exotic lands.
Lunch on the moss at Taylor Bluff on yet another dull and damp day.
