I opted out of the trek this morning. My poor knee wasn’t feeling great.
So the team left very early and I went for a more sedate walk through the hotel gardens and the Victoria Park gardens nearby.
Follow my trail.
Past the fountain to the children’s playground
Good morning to hotel staff and past the sculptured hedges.
Reading each of the little signs along the way.
To the one under our top floor corner room.
I followed the track down out of the hotel to the Victoria Park gardens which at 7.30 only had workers in there. It was a quiet oasis.
The children’s garden
Then out and around the town before heading back to the hotel, spotting Mike and John other non trekkers.
Breakfast was wonderful. I shared it with Mark, who also didn’t walk due to an ankle injury.
I’m now waiting for the walkers to return. I know I’ll be sorry when they tell me about their adventures.
