Friday Foray August 2015


Friday Foray #10 Kingston Beach to Shot Tower, and return;  20 August 2015.

Walk: The Alum Cliffs trail, part of the Greater Hobart Trails.

Food: Lunch at The Shot Tower Cafe.

Valeri, Peter and Bruni set off on a fabulous winter’s day and ambled along the Kingston Beach foreshore to give Bruni a run before taking to the trail. It is a great walk; lots of water views, different foliage and bushland, some great back yards and then an AWFUL descent and ascent to The Shot Tower.

A reviver of the most delicious fare with a brilliant cup of tea before tackling that horrible ravine to get back to the trail, but worth every knee-wrenching step. The smells of the bush along the way are delightful.
