Pictures of the East Barham river walk on 15th December

On Saturday a small group gathered to walk the East Barham river from Marriners Falls to the confluence with Otway stream expert Greg Peters. For those who could not make it, here are a few pictures of the river walk. It took about 6 hours - (Mobile phone photos by Simon Pockley).
