What a great day for a walk it turned out to be! Chilly to start and it then just got better and better.
A bit wet under foot in parts, however nothing to get your socks in a knot about.
Looks like the GPS got it at 21.3 km for the day if you came via the Botanic Gardens. Lots and lots of water about-great to see.
We now start to head away from Adelaide, so it’s all north from here, apart from the west bits and the south bits, but we’ll get to that a bit later in the E2E4 programme.
Did you miss out on the Friends Sea to Summit? Then join the Road Runners on 12th Sept for a run or walk. 15km or 32km.

The End to End 5 group rose to the challenges of the weather and the track for the section of the Heysen Trail between Balquhidder and Waitpinga Campground on Sunday 15th. The 47 walkers easily overcome the elements and some tricky track conditions that caused the occasional wet boot and one leader to find himself prone after tripping on his walking pole while crossing Waitpinga Creek. Despite unrelenting wind from the south west, the walk was enjoyed by all. See you all at next month’s walk.
With high winds and the fickle weather at our backs, 25 hardy walkers, including 15 students and parents from St Joseph’s School, Kingswood, started the inaugural George Driscoll Sea to Summit walk at 7.45AM.
Eight hours later, having been blown upon, sprinkled upon, rained upon and even hailed upon, all 25 ceremoniously touched the Mount Lofty obelisk.
Another great walk completed, with the youngest, Michael, aged 12 carrying 4 litres of water. Part of the "Save the Murray" I suspect!
