No pain, no gain .....!!

This road looks deceptively flat, and it is.... in this ONE spot, believe me or not (would I fib?) 90% of this stretch of walking path from Burns Beach to Whitfords Surf Rescue has more 'highs and lows' than the 'streets of San Fransisco'..but you see, that's the challenge..!! I'm taking part in a charity walk/run in a few weeks time and I desperately need to train up a bit, well more than a 'bit', totally!! A friend and I set off on a two hour walk, along the way we passed a young couple smooching on a bench, hmmm! on the way back they were still at it, I couldn't resist remarking  'that looks so much more fun than this!!' They looked up, smiled, and got right back to it.....!! The reward for our efforts was a really good cup of coffee sans le gateau at the Burns Beach Cafe.....! Have a fab Thursday.....!

  2. As they say, youth is wasted on the young. That's a very forboding scene, from blue sky to threatening clouds.
