A lovely day in Paradise â with the temp. keeping well below that of the earlier forecasts. John led 20 walkers up the Torrens, and back to Thornton Park for the BBQ and catch-up. With around 50 Friendsâ and their friends chatting under the pines till late in the afternoon, we were but one of many groups enjoying Aust Day at Thornton. A popular place with plenty of room. Another enjoyable social occasion.
