This walk has become a tradition for the club. Please note the times above as, for public service reasons, the normal gaytime dispensation is not available!
The train journey together gives us the opportunity to catch up on the news. When we reach Portrush, we will walk via Ramore Head and the town itself to the East Strand and follow the beach ’til we reach the White Rocks where we will have lunch. There are places here to shelter from any wind, though in previous years we have always been blessed with lovely weather. It may be cold, so wrap up tight, bring food and a warm drink. When we return to the town, there are good venues for a snack (some of our number are partial to fish and chips) and those customary drinkie-winkies! We hope that you will join us on this occasion; in a sense a bit like an old fashioned excursion!
