Following Michael's philosophical words I thought I'd pen a short entry for the day. As he mentioned, today we got wet - although not as wet as we would have got if the lovely Zoe at Waihi didn't lend us a couple of brollies (we left ours at the bach). Without getting too D&M, that little act of compassion is indicative of the hospitality that Mike and I have enjoyed on our adventure to date. Without exception people have been generous, encouraging and generally pleasant. It has been overwhelming, and makes each day a pleasure - whether our golf is good or bad.
Today - like much of the last few days - the golf was woeful. Neither Mike nor I could hit a shot, but thankfully we could both have a chuckle and just enjoy doing what we are doing. Because it is a privileged position that we are in, playing golf every day. We are lucky to be able to take time out from business as usual, to undertake this journey. We are lucky that this is our 'challenge'; for many other people challenges are much greater, and more bearing on daily life. So despite our God awful golf, Mike and I are sitting in our mate Simon's bach, by the beach, with a beer in hand and friends/girlfriends across the room - and there is an unspoken acknowledgement that life is good.
Tomorrow the golf may be better, and that would be nice. Regardless, it's going to be a good day for us, and we hope yours is too.
