November 2021 - Bicentennial Trail

Our earlier plans to tackle Mount Wedge floundered due to other commitments and a dawning realisation of the challenge involved in a one day outing to that distance and the climbing of that peak. Di suggested we climb Mt Nelson instead, a much more approachable ask.

On a beautiful Sunday morning, Di, Angie, Gerwyn and Wayne met at the top of Lambert Ave at 11am. Note: points to Angie and Di for riding there :)

It was a lovely walk up, and great to catch up on everybody's news. We were interested (or something) to find that we took longer to walk up than on previous walks - it used to take us 60 minutes, today it took us 75 minutes. Can't think why.

Anyhow, we reached the Signal Station Cafe and were ushered to the best table in the house, right on the corner, with terrific views over the Derwent, Lauderdale and round to Oppossum Bay. The menu was good, with lots to decide from, the service was good, and the meals were generous and yummy.

Note to gardeners: if you're thinking of visiting the Cafe, they are offering meal credits in exchange for lemons and limes.

We started off back down the hill at 1.35pm, and passed an echnidna trying to hide under a tree:

We probably got back to our starting point at about 2pm. A very pleasant outing.
