The new walking season has bounced into action, with the first Lavender Federation Trail walk on Sunday. 54 walkers on the trail from Murray Bridge to Monarto Oval. A cool day with showers allowed all to air the wet weather gear. The trail was well defined and being relatively flat, was a great “leg stretcher” early in the season. A sandy trail finished the 18.2km walk, being more like preseason training in the sand dunes, as the local motorcycle fraternity had also enjoyed the same road reserve. The walk was followed by afternoon tea, sheltered behind the buildings next to the oval. A special thanks to everyone who contributed biscuits and slices, capping off a great first day to the season. The second walk is in early May, Please book early for a great day’s activity and fellowship.
This is going to be a special season for walking, due to the large amount of summer rain, so the environment will be very different and perhaps even unique to normal years.
Thanks to John Potter and his team, for a great day.
