Men's Walking Group

Ten of us walked about 5 Km in the smoky haze from forest fires through Manley Park and back part way along the beach.  Finished off with coffee at the (RED) Old School House in Cobble Hill.  It was an enjoyable jaunt with a few ups and downs for exercise.  Map and photos below.  --  DeNNis.


Parked at Manley Park entrance (bottom right).  Follow trace from "Cars", then clockwise around the loop and back to "Cars".

Weir is full but large lower drain not opened.

Across first of several bridges.

Not much water in Manley creek.

About three ships anchored out but hard to see them
through the smoky haze.

How long will this old Arbutus stand??

Lots of colour in this Mountain Ash.

A good crop on this Walnut tree.

The dairy farm.

These Douglas Fir trees were planted years ago in neat rows.

Down the stairs to the beach.

The Arbutus Ridge fuel dock.


Beach bush whacking.

Where we came from.

Back up from the beach.

Fall is in the air.

Queen Annes Lace -- In bloom  -- half gone to seed  --  gone to seed.

Back on to Granfield Way.
