She's travelling ok. Last blood test revealed she was low in blood platelets, so chemo postponed for a week. Next blood test on Monday.

Another pic for Al. These boards aren't light with all the glass, even without them being full of water, and this girl has one by herself. Huba huba. No body stockings for her(for stingers), Gold Coast 1964.

Ellis Beach is on Cook Highway and is on the wine'dee cost road to Port Douglas and raises a lot of money by fun raising car and bike shows for the Joiner life savers, and is a very popular spot for weddings on the beach
