Over 50 people joined the members of the Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse Ladies committee on their third practice walk for the year in Betty’s Bay on Sunday 17 November. 

Walkers who joined the Lighthouse committee for the practice walk in Betty’s Bay on Sunday wore blue to show their support for Movember.

The walkers were treated to beautiful vistas and perfect walking weather – little wind and rain, some sunshine here and there, and cool temperatures. 

The Betty’s Bay practice walk wasn’t the only one held this weekend as the Lighthouse Ladies are spread throughout the whole of South Africa, even though the headquarters are based here in Hermanus. The ladies who were unable to make it to Betty’s Bay on Sunday hosted their own practice walks in their areas to show their support and to get ready for the big 100 km walk in March 2020. 

Veterans of the Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse walk, Cathrine Nkonyane, Leslie Clark and Marlinda Wright. Marlinda won the prize for the best-dressed walker with her massive moustache.

Those attending the practice walks were asked to wear blue and to dress up in moustaches to show their support for Movember, an annual initiative that encourages the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues. 

There was also a gift bag of tasty goodies and a bottle of wine for the best-dressed walker, which went to Marlinda Wright who rocked a large horseshoe snor.

The next practice walk will take place on Sunday 8 December in Hermanus from Grotto beach to Sopies Klip and back (12 km). The walk will start at around 07:30 at low tide to allow for easier walking on hard sand. The walk is free and open to everyone.
