HEAVY HIK­ING

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Deb­bie the Soc­cer Mum loves the soc­cer kid but is wor­ried he may done too many head­ers. He was dragged away by his earnest school on a five-day camp­ing trip on the Table­lands re­cently. One par­tic­u­lar day they were sent out on a 15 km hike. Other kids had loaded a few big rocks into his bag, and be­ing mal­nour­ished for a few days al­ready, he did find the go­ing amaz­ingly dif­fi­cult. The lads hinted very point­edly when he com­plained of the weight, but he didn’t get the mes­sage. Never was a kid more happy to get back to town and into Deb­bie’s fine home cook­ing.
