We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
I rather think the month of October this year will rank as one of the wettest months on record. Last week our hike was on a wet day and just about every day this week has had lots of precipitation. Not surprising then that our hike included a visit to see the falls in action. We were rewarded with an impressive display as you can see from my photo. As the attractive little recreation area at the mouth of Stromberg Creek is not far from the falls we headed down there for our lunch stop knowing that we would find shelter from the steady rain under the tarp covered picnic structures beside the beach. It did rain on us for most of the hike, but the temperature was quite high for the time of year, and with hardly any wind where we were walking it really turned out to be quite pleasant after all.
The forecast for this Saturday is for a fairly dry day with perhaps some breaks in the heavy cloud cover, so lets hope the prediction is a good one.
