Joan Barnier notices the Banksia blossom is green on St Patrick’s Day

Welcome to the Cooloola Cove Wheelie Walkers newest member, Larraine who joined us for our Saint Patrick’s Day walk in green. Joan Barnier and I noticed that even banksias wore green for 17 March, along Creekside Esplanade.

The CCWWs gather on Mondays and Fridays and often number fourteen walkers departing from the Shopping Centre Nautilus Drive Bus shelter at 8am. Most of us sit and talk over coffee afterwards.

Great to have so many of our One Step at a Time Tin Can Bay walkers participate in the third annual International Women’s Day Twilight Walk, as well as a few of the CCWWs. As always, the TCB QCWA President Wendy Ritchie and her wonderful team of ladies enthusiastically provided refreshments after that walk.

Congratulations to Jane on achieving your first award for your 25 walks with our Heart Foundation Walking group (- yes I know you walk every day!) and to Annette for your 50 walks award. Check your letter boxes.

Recently the later walking group in Tin Can Bay has delighted in looking for, counting and watching the Burdekin (Radjah Shelduck) duck family of at least eleven. One morning as I drove out for CCWW, I saw maybe ten Australian Wood ducks heading for the Golf course! Even the ducks are enjoying walking.

One Step at a Time Tin Can Bay early group leaves the TCB Bakery promptly at 6.30am whereas the later group departs at 7am.

Why don’t you join us?  Walk Yourself Happy!  It’s free, fun and a great way to improve our physical, mental, social and emotional health. Queries? Contact Judy Kiddle on 5486 2181 or myself on 0400 756 615.
