Very Proud of Maria in doing this Hike.  With all her social commitments & having to take my mother home the night before!! Sandra  the time keeper, telling us the Km’s and the average pace. ”Speedy” Sarah. We had to make her do a few extra Km’s. Hellen was just happy to give the challenge a go! Deb the Legend ”One step at a time” and Jade the ”Walking Fridge” having a 15kg Backpack.

We got off the ferry and started Hiking to the Harbour Bridge. We had the most stunning views of Sydney Harbour. It was the biggest highlight of the day.

We trekked the street & Parks of North Sydney / Neutral bay until we hit the nature trail. We trekked along the foreshore. All the way until Spit Bridge.

We had great views the whole way around but it wasn’t all smooth sailing!!!
