EmpowHer Walks To-Date
Northern Coastal Walk
22nd May 2021 - Greens Beach Walking Track
Around 20 women met Wendy Marston at the public carpark opposite Greens Beach Store on Saturday morning, 22nd May.
It was the first walk for the newly created walking group, later named EmpowHer, a private Facebook group! , which has now grown to 30 members.
After each signing the necessary safety attendance sheets, we set off on the Pebbly Beach Circuit, known to locals as the Greens Beach Walking Track.
With a cool humidity in the air, the sun peeked out from time to time as the walk began and continued. There were those who stopped for a brief morning tea break, and those who chose to keep walking.
For one Mum, it was proof to all, that Mothers' Day gifts are actually used! Sporadic chatter and laughter was the order of the day. Surprisingly, ages ranged from mid-teens to midseventies!
We took the time to stop along the way, taking in the natural beauty around us. A couple of viewing points were Shoal Bay, Boobyalla Bay, West Head all within the beautiful Narawntapu National Park.
NEXT NORTHERN WALK: Sat 28th August 2021. Contact Wendy to find out more.
Southern Coastal Walk
19th June 2021, Arm End
On a cool morning on 19 June, 12 rugged-up ladies met on the Eastern Shore for a delightful walk on South Arm peninsula, around Arm End.
After initial introductions and reconnecting with friends we hadn't seen for some time, we set off to enjoy the delights of the great outdoors and beautiful scenery.
We soon realised there were striders and strollers in the group as we spread out along the track. However, with frequent catch-up stops we were able to regroup and walk and chat with others in the group.
Some knew the landscape better and were able to point out landmarks. We read the history plaques along the way and were even treated to seeing a few dolphins playing in the water.
As one of the older walkers, the walk was a lot less strenuous than I had anticipated, and except for removing the odd outer layer of clothing we all managed quite comfortably.
Lunch together afterwards completed a most enjoyable and companionable outing.
