Last Walk

Sydney icons, every one of them
Our tax dollars at work
Saturday 8 December: 9 walkers enjoyed a perfect day for a circuit walk from Milson's Point station. Sydney icons, stately mansions, fantastic views, great weather, lots of steps in places, a ferry ride and return across the Harbour Bridge. A bit longer than anticipated, but all good. Much enjoyed by all.

Club member Jo-Anne Lee did a Kimberley tour with the following company this year and was very impressed with the couple running the show. Great value for money. They now have a new tour added to their offerings. See https://www.kimberleyoffroadtours.com/­our-tours/­

Article at bottom of page re ticks is very informative. Please read. Val does carry a can of stuff to freeze them off on walks, but depending on where you live you might like to obtain your own.

Deep (& Meaningful?) Thoughts from Members

people say "You only Live once" They are way off the mark, you Live every day and you only Die Once!!! Live and enjoy what we have. Dawn Carrington

Also people say life begins at 40 (or 50) but life begins at 0 and it is upwards for as long as you like

Tip: Don't say Dad Joke Anymore. Better to say Grandfather Joke. One step worse Ah, Ha, Ha, Greg!
