Social at Alverstone Nature Reserve

On 17 October 2010 several members of the club and some friends took a trip to the Alverstone Nature Reserve, near Assegai and Hillcrest. This is a beautiful nature reserve, home to many buck and some breathtaking views. Most people chose to open their visit with a relaxing walk around the reserve. This was followed by a bring-and-braai which ended with  delicious roasted marshmallows. A few pictures are below:
