    Great stroll along the water, with still lots of sun,
    without being too hot, good breeze, and lots of views. Good exercise w/t exerting too much. The pub is an excellent reward w/ good food+drinks, and beautiful sunset. Thanks Neil for organizing and everyone, for a wonder experience. Tip: come early (4pm?) to try the food trucks.

    Maybe a earlier one so it can account for the shorter day?

    Hi Neil,

    I just checked my email and noticed that you increased the limit of spots. Unfortunately, I wont be able to make it at 5:00 pm. but thank you anyway. See you later;-)

    August 17

  • Neil

    I've now increased the limit so that those of you on the wait list can join us. If you will not be attending, please be sure to update your RSVP so I know how many people to expect.

      Hi Neil , due to unforeseen circumstances I've been delayed and would arrive late. So I sadly have to cancel . It was to be my first event and I was very much looking forward to it . I may be able to join you later . (Which pub please ?)

      August 17

    • Neil

      Probably the Tap and Barrel

    For an event such as this where the group can be virtually any size, why does there need to be a waiting list,? I can see where they would need to be a limit where we are playing tennis and they were limited number of ports available but surely see well can support another 10 or 15 people as good pub.
    Fortunately, I typically never make up my mind until the last minute so seldom find myself being able to attend these events even though I would like to.

      Colin-see Neil's reply...it's only limited so that Neil will know when to stride off and no longer wait for the tardy ones :)

    I realise I'm on the wait list but I won't be coming to the pub after as I will have my dog with me. Would I be able to come for the walk?

    August 17

    • Neil

      Yes that's OK Anna, the pub is optional so you can just join us for the walk.

    Can the max number of people be modified to include those in the waiting list? Please?

    Hi, Neil. Is this a rain or shine walk?

    August 14

    • Neil

      It will not be cancelled unless it's pouring with rain. Currently the forecast's looking good for Sunday, so let's hope it's not wrong!
