Hare : Priscilla & Dothan
The 6:30 ferry delegation didn't have to think much about how to get to the start as ex-DB'ite Gary Glitter used to live in the same road. Boilers and clan however weren't seen in DB and it was only a call from the pavilllion above the piazza that meant they had gone to the 'usual' start.
The briefing on Pricilla's lawn, then we all trooped out and on down the path to join the main Discovery Bay Road. Across the road and along Seahorse Lane to a check-back at the end. Confusion set in when the T's were found on the routes back to the main road and no markings were found on the beach path. Parky then led a delegation straight across the main road an up into the hills.
The rest of the pack eventually found the right trail by going through the check-back knowing there must be flour somewhere on the other side. This led us off the beach onto Seebee Lane and along Headland Drive to get back to the main road where Parky et al. had gone into the shiggy 20mins earlier.
Up the big steps then fortunately the trail short-cut left instead of going all the way up the hill and we ran back down to civilization then up the concrete steps from Parkvale Village and up the path to come out on the road towards the reservoir. Across the reservoir and left at the golf course shiggy turnoff and on in towards Serenity.
A hose pipe in the paddling pool to freshen up then plenty of pasta and mango pudding rustled up by Mrs. Priscilla.
A good run and basho.
