Out Of Africa … Or Beyond !

Delightful spot for a Hash run on a Sunday afternoon.We assembled in the lovely park/playground on the banks of the Swan. The Hare, Free Beer, was keen to get the pack off but warned us that her off-sider, Skimpy, may not remember where he was meant to set up the drink stop !
Still, we had a well marked trail that could have followed the river but, instead, meandered its way up the one hill in Woodbridge, through stubbly grass that left spiky bits in your socks, while making you sprain your ankles in the invisible ruts here and there ! The runners were having some trials and tribulations finding trail but the Hare kept a sharp lookout for them so she didn’t lose them.
Looking around, I was instantly reminded of the African landscape, expecting to come across a pride of lions, or a herd of antelopes majestically sweeping across the plains, but instead we came across Skimpy – (bitter disappointment) although this was at the drink stop ! (Yes … he found it !) Refreshing ourselves with juniper juice and a tonic, we headed back to the start, this time along the river. Very nice …
In the circle, we had charges administered by the RA for the usual sins but the Hare got an accolade for managing to set the run in a proper Hash manner, UNHINDERED by Skimpy !
It was a good end to the Hash run ….

By the way, just a reminder that it is the annual Valentine’s Day LINGERIE run this week and Franger is looking forward to it … Wear something alluring or Leapfrog will kit you out in some crazy number you may regret !
