Walking at Friars Cliff on Tuesday 21st May 

How lucky were we...we may not have had much sunshine but we missed the rain on Tuesday when we met at Avon Run Road Car park.  There were thirteen of us walking, our highest number for a few weeks which was lovely. We walked along the path to Steamer Point Nature Reserve stopping to visit the small beautifully decorated visitor centre on our way.
A few of us had been more recently and pointed out some of the wooden wildlife sculptures that were of interest.

Our walk was gentle with lots of different vegetation around, the company was great, lots of different conversations between smaller groups and the views were amazing, both at elevation and along the promenade. Despite the sun not really showing it's face, we had a lovely time together.
All of us agreed, it was definitely a lovely way to spend a Tuesday afternoon.



Keeping with our tradition of finishing our walk with coffee/tea and cake, we were well looked after by the staff at The Beach Hut Cafe. We all did well to only have a coffee or tea because there were lots of lovely things to choose from the menu. A great discussion evolved over the contents of the delicious smoothies that were on offer....the staff, when asked, disclosed the contents of each one. All sounded very yummy but it was agreed the cakes were delicious also.


Next walk on Tuesday 7th June....arrangements and location tbc.
