The heavy rain in Alstonville on Monday didn't bode well. Yet, the sky cleared on cue making it a very pleasant evening for our walk/run.
We all set off at varying paces, runners criss-crossing with walkers on a couple of occasions. Pause for a quick chat then off again.
The runners set a cracking pace. After covering the streets of Alstonville in good time, the consensus was to add a little blockie, just to wear us out completely. Even so, we made it back to Feel Free's verandah for a recovery tipple while waiting for the walkers. This gave us time to have a D&M on the difficulty of opening beer bottles and whether the beer was off or not.
Upcycler called "hash circle" only to notice that we had already arranged ourselves perfectly. I suspect this comes from years of practice.
Neville told us that it was a particularly long walk that evening. I am unsure whether that was a good or bad thing.
Hash Brown quipped that he obviously wasn't missed while he and Retread were away trekking Kosciusko. He must have been contemplating this whilst running because he declared he had almost detoured into the corner church (for reassurance? for guidance?).
The runners missed Bitumen but our jokemeister turned up in time for a joke, only to announce that he didn't have one. The floor was given to Hootu, who appears perfectly comfortable telling a bawdy joke.
Down-down was given to Feel Free. Thankyou for a fine chicken curry, rice and pappadums. At first, we thought the night's fare was to be a la carte. It turned out that the circulating menu was from the pub instead. A special mention goes to Barney who helped us devour the food.
Goanna will be back next week after her "little" 900km bike ride.
