With friends at C2S
Wow what a weekend away. Once again, this small group of ferals left Griffith, for another City to Surf. We decide to leave earlier than planned, the trip was quiet for the first couple of hours till we all really woke up and then the chatter started. The laughs were endless. We went to the Expo at Moore Park, had a look, took some advice, were given some goodies to take home and headed on our merry way to our home away from home for the next 3 nights. Thanks Janelle for your driving skills into peak traffic.
Next day we headed out to see some sights of this amazing city. It never ceases to amaze us. But first of all we had to do some retail therapy, and Myers saw us coming. Coffee break in the food court was a welcome treat, and it was decided to walk to the Rocks via Darling Harbour and Bangaroo Point. What an adventure. And I must add the day was at its glory, sun shining, well appreciated warmth in the sun and most of all the views. Bangaroo Point is well worth the day out, the walk was invigorating. Next thing we were at the Rocks ready to see the tail end of the markets and a well earnt rest at The Mercantile Pub with a cooling ale or two. As the afternoon started to end we decided it was time to head back for tea and rest up before tomorrow’s event. Waiting for us for tea was Carmel’s Homemade Lasagna, yum yum. It was enjoyed by all. Watched some of the Olympics before having an early night.
Sunday morning the red and green groups were up early for breakfast while the rest of us, the blue group, tried to sleep in. Eventually the enthusiasm got us out of bed and once again joined in the chatter.
At the start waiting for the early groups to start we bumped into Tom, what a surprise to see others ferals at the start line. Sadly that was the last time we saw Tom. We also saw Val and Judith walking around Hyde Park. Linda and I also saw them as we were about to enter the first tunnel, as usual happy to have a chat while they walked. Nice work ladies.
Made it, the beach looked soo good and to see the happy faces of this little group made it all worthwhile. Let’s plan to do it again
