Great walk as always around marine drive and it helps having the story at the end of Hairy Bob. My step daughter gets excited to go and see where he used to live. For a calved out rock it makes many happy memories lol

During our walk from South Bay round to North Bay we spotted Hairy Bobs Cave on Marine Drive. Just look for the skate park and you can't miss it as it is directly behind the skate park, and at the foot of the Castle. This...More
