A group of men and women who enjoy walking for around an hour to an hour and a half . They should like the beach trails and outlying areas of bayside, but also have an interest in the occasional walk which takes in a park (eg. Braeside) or a trip to the city to walk the Tan or around the Botanical Gardens. Medium paced walkers who like to keep the momentum going but also happy to stop and enjoy special sights when they occur. We are a convivial group who never struggle to make conversation but we can still have our quiet time when it suits not to talk! A very happy activity with like-minded people who just want to start their week with a spring in their step and in good company. This is a mixed walking group of members who are reasonably fit and able to walk between 4-6kms within one and a half hours. The group are encouraged to suggest alternative walks at any time and be prepared to collaborate and share any interesting experiences on the way. The important element is one of enjoying the outcome and the company of friendly seniors! Communication regarding the walks are by email, and a special request is that people notify the tutor if they are unable to attend or are away. We usually leave five minutes after the departure time in order to keep the morning on track. We generally end our walks at a cafe for refreshments or take a thermos to a park venue.
Prerequisites: Fit enough to walk around 4-6kms at a steady pace. Water bottles and sunscreen essential, particularly in the summer period.
