On On: Skimpy’s place, Helena Valley
Rusty set a cracker of a run, starting with some curly shenanigans around Skimpy’s block, followed by some curious creeping through some bushes alongside the road, and then off and over into bushland. With all the back and forwards, the walkers managed to keep up with–and sometimes overtake–us. (Special mention to Jessie (aged 4) and Tumbletoes (6), who led the pack for a good twenty metres.)
There was some challenge in following the toilet paper markers, once we got to what was essentially a tip, with rubbish strewn all around. Then, somewhere along the line we got ourselves turned around and came out of a false trail the wrong way. Somehow, I mistakenly took a few shortcuts here and there– at times I have a terrible sense of direction!
BBQ followed, as well as promised fire, which was much appreciated on the cold night. Dosh’s apple pie was okay…I’d force myself to eat it again. 😛
