A rest day. Only 15km to Millicent, where I was greeted by Host Family, Judy, Kelly and Sam. A lovely family with CanTeen connections. Time for a break from Fiona, meeting the Mayor, the media, and answering emails, followed by a wonderful hot shower, hot meal, and a warm family atmosphere in front of the fire......and my tent will stay dry.
Sam is a 6 foot 12 year old, mad keen on sport and maths. His week is all about fitting in soccer, AFL, and boxing practices. He takes up the whole room when he lounges, and is reluctant to concentrate on his homework, when it is so easy to play games on the computer. Kelly, his elder sister is passionate about languages and drawing. They are typical teenagers, except their Dad is having treatment for cancer. CanTeen steps in and helps them to learn about the changes in their life's. During the holidays they are attending a CanTeen Camp, with others in similar situations.
