U3A Walking Group - 18th March 2022

by Tim Wright - 16:24 on 18 March 2022

Seven of us set off in dry but breezy weather to walk the Covenanter's Memorial Walk. The sun came out occasionally and the path was wet in places.

We perused the information board at the Memorial and then walked along the cliff to the graves of the poor unfortunate victims. Echo's of Man's inhumanity to Man still reverberate today with the Ukraine Invasion. We successfully negotiated the steep steps without mishap. Coming up the final steps we spotted a Hen Harrier looking for it's lunch ahead of us. Then up past East Denwick which used to be only accessible by walking or tractor many years ago. It reminded the leader, more than 40 years ago, of taking a patient from there to hospital in the middle of the night on the back of a flat bed trailer. Now there is a proper hard track down and electricity at the house to boot. After that it was a return to the cars along another aged track. A thoroughly good walk, talk and exercise enjoyed by all the participants.

The next walk will be Thursday 28th April. It's a bit of a long wait but the AGM is Thursday 21st April and I am away the week before that.

Keep moving, Tim.
