A greeting committee consisting of our group leaders welcomes everyone and explains the walk. A group photo is taken at the beginning, then the fast walkers set their pace, and everyone else settles into their own rhythm. Also at the start point, hanging out in the water were mallards, a coot, and a yellow-crowned night heron.
