More Spring doings

The Sunday Bushwalk was an easy one: less than 10 kms from Point Walter along the river to the Zephyr Cafe and back again. It was sunny but quite windy. We had lunch in the park near the Zephyr and posed for a group photo.

Out on the spit

Back at Point Walter, we went out on the spit. The wind was even stronger there, and even the black swans were keeping their heads down! We had to watch for the tide coming in as the spit gets covered in places.

On Wednesday, it was Ellie's school visit to Kings Park and I had volunteered to go along to boost the adult numbers. This was no easy job. I had 6 kids to look after, but there were crowds (about 2000) to contend with, and many activities to choose from.

My group wanted to look at the stand for the animal rescue sanctuary and then they discovered that the Santos Energy stand was giving away "slinkies" which were the must-have items of the day! We had to queue up a long time to achieve this goal!
