We had a great day, if a little disappointing that no one other than family turned out to walk
with me, despite having had a couple of emails from people who said that they would. Nevertheless,
many thanks to Nicky and Peter Titchener (CFSA) who made the effort to come up to Murray Bridge
to launch the walk for us. With just us there, I really did appreciate your effort.
We had a lovely day walking with a cool breeze up until about 1pm and, with a couple of stops
along the way, got to Tailem bend at about 5pm. I will leave there on MONDAY AT 9.00 AM.
As already mentioned, I am having a day off tomorrow because, with the weather forecast of over 35
degrees, I am reluctant to walk too far. I will have Tuesday off as well for other commitments,
but will then walk every day until further notice.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU to my family for joining me again yesterday. Well done to Amelia for doing
the total distance; to Justin (5) who joined in for the first time when it was safe for him to
do so; to Tehya-Rose, who did a few kms; and a big thank you to Emma who came and walked more
than half of the way after first teaching several classes at the gym - what energy! Lastly, but
by far not least, to my sons-in-law who did a sterling job sharing the driving with Chris and
walking as well. Thanks fellas. I couldn't have done this so well without your help. I love you
all very much.
