U3A Walking Group - November 2018

by Tim Wright - 17:21 on 23 November 2018
 
Twelve of us met at the Point of Ness Caravan site to walk to Warbeth and thence onto the Gun viewpoint in Stromness. Luckily the forecast drizzle never materialized and the wind was light. The walking was easy and at Warbeth, while stopping to catch breath, we spied over 40 Ring Plovers on the beach also resting except they were able to rest on one leg. We did not follow their example !
 
Back past Warbeth, Jack peeled off to look for his Grandfather's grave but was unable to locate it. It has an interesting inscription from the Lighthouse Keepers as he was Captain of the relief boat. Next time Jack will be sent ahead to suss it out for us.
 
On then to The Gun Lookout where the views were excellent but also showed a heavy shower over Wideford direction, the original walk destination. Back through Stromness to the cars  still dry and, by then, hungry too. Off to lunch out for some but all food well earned after an good morning's exercise.
 
The next walk will be on Thursday morning the 6th December. The venue is not yet decided but I will let you know nearer the day. We will then start walking early in the month in the future  so that the U3A outdoor groups will not clash towards the end of the month.
 
Keep moving, Tim.
