Keeping in Touch – 2

Thank you to everyone who responded with photos and stories as to how they are occupying all the spare time we have had thrust upon us.  For those who may not have seen the photos on Facebook, you can view them in Gallery on our home page.  There are over 40 photos under the heading Timeline Photos including a lovely photo submitted by Dave Jenkins of a heron at Lake Illawarra practicing its self-isolation.

Today’s feature photo, above, is from Russell Verdon’s recent trip to Antarctica.  This and several more from his trip feature in Timelines also.  If you run the mouse over the photos you will find a description.

Amongst other contributions, John Groom has purchased a snazzy new e-bike with which he is hoping to impress all his fellow Rambling cyclists as soon as he can.

Peter Jack probably takes the prize for the most creative activity with photos of the kayak he is building at home.

Gabe Bresolin is improving his golf game with an ingenious practice chipping method using what he has to hand.  Luckily for him golf is about the only sport still available to us.

We would like to pass on our best wishes to Margaret and Max Ward who are packing up and relocating to a new home in Sydney.  Margaret has assured me that this is not “goodbye” and she intends to still be an active member of the Ramblers when she can.

Jim Romanovski tells me that NPA have asked their members to submit a story about their favourite walk explaining where it is, why it is special to them and adding a couple of photos.  As our club has three different types of activities to choose from this might be something we can put together for our members to enjoy.
