Golden Shoe Hunt Clue #1-AT LARGE

Did you find Golden Shoe #1? Bring it to the MGCC office soon to claim your prize! 

A sunny day is a perfect time
for an island getaway
But do take care as you cross there
and use the right of way.

A well worn path does mark the line
that bounds on our northern side.
