southern walkway

today was the first of our big city tramps – the southern walkway. 12km (75 miles) from island bay to oriental bay along the eastern ridge.


out starting point is shortland park, in island bay next to the coast. the old public toilets have been taken over by the dunes.

one of the many “workingmen’s bowling clubs.” this one quite secluded in the town belt.

the council has just complete a mountain bike skills area. i’ll say that we’ll be back to give it a try, but i should know better.
