I've come to the conclusion that if you add the word 'club' to any activity it immediately becomes more interesting and amusing- thus the birth of 'hike club'. Yes, that's right...I've formed a hike club. Well to be honest hike is a strong word, it's more of a walking club considering the trail we tackled today was about 45 minutes round trip. Guess the massive backpacks, liters of water, band-aids, matches and torch we packed were a bit of over kill but at least we had fun. What hike club outing would be complete without a pit stop for some beach side coffee before taking a scenic drive through Church Point and into the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. From there we conquered the Topham Track and then onto West Head Lookout which provided spectacular views of Palm Beach, Broken Bay and the Central Coast. Before heading back we grabbed lunch and replenished any lost nutrients by scarfing down fish & chips and burgers. Not very healthy but the harbour views made it worth every calorie. Oh and I should warn you that like everyone legit club out there, we too have a few rules (which by writing this very post I've already broken). First rule of hike club...you do not talk about hike club. Second rule of hike club...you do not talk about hike club. Third rule of hike club...no boys.
