u3a Walking Group One - November 2023

by Tim - 19:42 on 01 December 2023


Nine of us met at Ness Point today for a walk to Warbeth .The weather ,having been forecast to be cold with sleet showers and a moderate NE wind was anything but .The sun met us and it was dry all the way .It was also remarkably calm for Orkney . The 4 C temp meant that there was no ice but a brisk turn up to Warbeth along the shore path soon warmed us up anyway. Noticeable however was the fact that a lot of the Stromnesians going along this way with their dogs had not remembered their little green bags . We had a brief rest at the beach with a view of Dunlin and Shags then it was back again via the Gun Viewpoint . The view was impressive indeed with the low light . Then back to our staring point after a 3.5 mile walk in unexpectedly excellent winter walking conditions .

Some people went to the Pier cafe for lunch followed by viewing of the Christmas exhibition at the Pier Art Centre. A well worthwhile outing all around .

The next walk will be Friday 5th January with time and place decided the Wednesday before .

Keep moving ,
