The AGM Bayside Walk at Ricketts Point

Eve Steel hosted the MUAB AGM meeting on 22nd February, and afterwards gave a talk on the
Indigenous history of Ricketts Point.

The long walk was a 11km loop with lunch stop led by Mick Liddell. We descended to the bay from Eve’s place and turned northwards, going along the foreshore paths to Sandringham and
returning along the beaches. Our lunch-stop at the Cerberus Kiosk provided excellent fish and chips. Some members delayed their return for a swim or a dance at a Disco Party in the concealed coves we came across.

The shorter walk of about 6km was led by Merilyn Liddell, our newly installed President, with Eve providing local knowledge. Going from the Beaumaris Yacht Club, we walked south past Ricketts
Point along very pleasant paths with bay views of the Marine Sanctuary. We were rewarded with peaceful scenes of black swans in the shallows and gorgeous views across Port Phillip. The short walkers had an early lunch in the park, then went on to a viewing point further along Beaumaris Bay before returning. A delightful end to a successful AGM day.
