2023 Notley Late Easter Excursion

This year we chose the Walpole Wilderness Area as our excursion destination. All 15 members who attended opted to stay at the Walpole Lodge in the centre of town. The lodge turned out to be an excellent choice, as not only did it provide comfortable rooms at a very reasonable price, but our exclusive use also allowed us to meet around the log fire for our nightly recap before dinner and to use the large screen in the media room for showing photos after dinner.

Our observations
Plants in flower [37]
