A testy 5Km trek for the 10 of us around Stony Hill Park. A great new walk for the group suggested by Derek with fantastic ocean views, a great lunch at the Genoa Bay Café with an interesting and informative finish at the Historic Old Mill house. Too many photos to publish them all. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis
