Everyone gets excited at the prospect of new wheels, shiny duco, comfort, speed and more. My new wheels mean a lot to me. They are more comfrtable than the old ones. They are faster, lighter and more manoeuvrable. They even have a tray table that I can eat at and sort through my treasures on. Thie week I got a surprise, all my christmases came at once, my new wheelcahir arrived and was adjusted to suit me. They mean that I can eat on the tray table that is at a good height. My support staff like them because the handles are at a good height and they can push me around more easily when we are out and about. They have made such a difference to my life.

On a beautiful winters day Drew and I went on a walk through Noosa National Parl with out cameras. We took photos of out journey. We saw lots of surfers, tourist's and also a koala Bear. On our walk we went past Teatree and Granite bay on our way to Hells Gates. We enjoyed the views of the magnificent crystal clear water and the people who were using it.
I also enjoyed saying 'Gday' to people who were walking the track. We heard lots of nationalities from all around our globe. On the way back it was hot and tiring but we had an awesome time.
