Wed­nes­day Walk­ers

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - Festive Food & Wine -

The group as­sem­bled next to the Scout and Cub Den last week, plan­ning to hike through the gullys head­ing up­hill. In­stead, overnight rain and more forecast for the morn­ing dic­tated a hard sur­face hike would be wiser so we turned in­stead along the Great Lake Walk­way. Although many um­brel­las were car­ried, the weather re­mained dry. Af­ter leav­ing the walk­way the group made sev­eral pas­sages along walk­ways loop­ing away from the lake edge on the walk to and around Sec­ombe Park. The cy­clists faced on the Great Lake Walk­way pro­duced a mixed re­ac­tion to a large group, with sev­eral pro­ceed­ing stead­fastly ahead ig­nor­ing the sig­nage that clearly states cy­clists should give way to walk­ers. A com­par­a­tively youth­ful 32-year-old woman along for the day es­tab­lished the record for the youngest ever to grace this group. The group will take a break from De­cem­ber 19 to Jan­uary 16. For more in­for­ma­tion on our walks, phone Bernie on 378 9229.
