Indulge Me

The weather has been a bit ordinary in our favourite camping spot but relaxing is the name of the game and that is being achieved....
Reading and stitching ......
Or just watching the locals going about their day.....

Our Son has finished his part of the Tour de Cure 2018 ride. He rode from Mackay to Midge Point through to Airlie Beach and had the most amazing and emotional experience. These photos are for my book of memories.
Beginning Day 1

Some of Lucas Mentors....he rates them fairly highly because trying to find motivation to train when you have had treatment that week or worked a full week was at times challenging.

And his destination and goal achieved!

Very proud of our boy and our family. Supporting him in lots of different ways.
Lucas said several moments stood out.....a little boy hugging him and giving $30 donation from his classmates. Giving a young cancer survivor is TDC wristband and having his wife and kids there to see him finish! They are now heading north on a bit of a holiday and then will be there to cheer the team in to Cairns at the finish.
So if you see the Tour de Cure team up north give them a toot of gratitude or better still thow some pennies their way!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
