Track Notes

It is said that ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ and this is true. But my loved one tells me that my enforced layoff from walking has also made me like a bear with a sore head. However, 32 years of spring cleaning in a month has been completed and our home is on the market. Yours for the right price. So back to walking!

We are so fortunate in Canberra to have a surfeit of inter-urban and urban fringe walking opportunities. The Canberra Nature Park, a collection of 33 areas within our city, provides many of these. Today we walked in the Mt Majura Nature Reserve.

It was a combination of tracks, footpads and off-track, including a careful descent of the rocky gully that slices the south-west flank of the hill, down to the bridge on the track. The gully was filled with daisies in flower.

A coffee at the newly opened and very nice The Knox made in Watson. Congratulations Dan C and staff.

Thanks Lorraine. A lovely and gentle reintroduction to walking.
