It has been a great weekend – climbing beautiful sea cliff granite at Freycinet, followed by Ireland smashing the Wallabies, then a nice long road ride with lots of long climbs today. I am loving life here, but still have an odd pang of homesickness:
It is hard to be away sometimes – it would have been nice to be with family this week because of Uncle Willie’s death. My thoughts are casting a line across the Moneycarragh River these last few days – good memories. I am thinking of you all, especially Auntie Monica and the whole McKibbin clan.
Have tacked on a few photos from earlier this year taken by John – thanks lad – for no particular reason except that I was looking at them on CD tonight. Bloody hell, I have lost weight since France! There is also one from Freycinet on the weekend of Andrew just starting a classic 19 (E1/E2 5c) on Alchemy Wall.
