It dawned a beautiful day on the morning of the Sunset Coast walk. It resulted in a sunny day, that was not too overbearing for those who took part.
Eager walkers arrived before the 7.30am registration start on Sunday 25 February 2018 with the Rotary Club of Waiuku well prepared to handle the situation.
The Sunset Coast Walk featured four different length walks across farmland, with stunning views of the west coast.
Nancy Rae from the Rotary Club of Waiuku said they received favourable comments throughout the day.
“People enjoyed views they had never seen before. Families enjoyed the picnic area and brought lunches to enjoy.”
She said the Scouts did a fantastic job of manning the BBQ and they were full of smiles.
More than 500 adults and 80 college students completed the walk, as well as an untold number of smaller children.
“One pushchair made the trip, while some young ones caught a ride on their Dad’s back,” Nancy said.
She said a special thanks had to be made to the farmers for allowing the land to be used, and to the “well-oiled machine” that is the Waiuku Rotary team who put in a fantastic effort.
