Last Walk

Cascade above Kingfisher Pool
Saturday 7 May. The weather gods were kind to us and 11 smiling walkers really appreciated the beautiful blue sky day. Still lots of mud and water on tracks, but no leeches encountered today so more reason for smiles. Heathcote NP circuit had challenges enough for most and more than one of us had a slide/slip but thankfully no serious injuries. After walk refreshments enjoyed at the Heathcote Inn where some of our group managed to totally confuse the bar staff. A good day all round, thanks all for your input.
