Each year Jon and John enter the Freycinet Challenge and each year Miriam and I offer cursory support whilst really just pursuing our own adventures on all the free days and afternoons. Last year we went up Mt Graham and this year we upped the ante and got the water taxi thing to drop us off at Cooks beach. From there we walked south to Bryan's beach then turned north and walked up the coast back to Coles Bay. All up about 20k but as it was relatively flat it was fairly easy.. The boat trip was fun for everyone except poor Jett who really hated it and clung onto Jon with both his arms and legs. He managed to crack a smile at the halfway point but mostly he just looked like this.. (picture coming) Still - he's come a long way since his waterphobia kept him off beaches and out of baths.
Oh - if you are wondering how the Johns did in their race - they did ok - Jon has resolved to do some training for next year so it doesn't hurt so much.
