A friendly visit and a very steep hill. Day 27, 47km,  (11/20/2008)

Last night daddy (Alistair) come and visited me so I started the day with a spring in my step. Deborah and I had a fairly uneventful run from Strahan via a curvy but beautiful road to Queenstown. In Queenstown we visited the students at St Joseph’s School and they help us raise $60 from the sale of our wristbands. After our talks at the school Alistair had to get back to Launceston so we said goodbye and D and I watched him drive up the Gormanston Hill, which is a 6km steep climb out of Queenstown. I feel he was the lucky one on this occasion as the weather started to turn bad with clouds rolling in and drizzle bringing in the cold, and he got to drive the steep ascent but we had yet to run up it. As I was feeling a little sad after saying goodbye to Alistair I decided that I wasn’t going to tackle the hill so I jumped in the car and as we drove away I saw D with a look of determination on her face, head down and arms swinging as she stared to run up the Gomey, as the local’s call it.   My mood improved at the Gomey lookout as Cheepa come and visited us and we had an international model type photo shoot next to the Queenstown sign. Cheepa’s visit was a fleeting one; he is in popular demand and doesn’t have much time, like most television stars and models so we do appreciated him giving up his precious time to visit us.  After Cheepa’s visit the rain really started too settled in but Deborah run a further 6kms to Lake Burbury where we are camped on the Lake’s edge for tonight. As I write this I can hear the rain on the roof of the caravan and a blanket of cold is in the atmosphere, for D’s stake I hope it clear’s for tomorrow.

Running with you soon.
