Ok – so here are some photos from yesterdays bus trip.
This is where we had to park to get everyone out. As you can see it's on a fair slope. Plus they can't get straight onto their walkers because there's no cutout bit in the gutter for them to roll up. Then once they were set to go I had to hold the front of the walkers while they went down the hill or they could've all ended up in a pile at the bottom. They had to walk down to where all the people are to get in.
You get a better idea of the hill from the journey back to the van. Pushing a wheelchair up there is not only hard work, but probably not even very safe. I decided to go out on the road instead. And if you look at the bottom right hand corner you can see that square has an extra steep dip in it. Those two guys walking up there aren't ours.
I was walking along with John helping him and he said something about 99 and I said – But you're not 99 are you? and he said, whoa, no, I'm only 90.
This was at the club where we had lunch. It was a better set up. I like this photo because it looks as if we've just tossed the walkers out the door. But they are difficult and uncooperative things to fold and carry so they tend to get chucked about a bit. Thats 90 year old John making a run for the bus. He was having a tussle with another guy about who was going to sit in the front seat so he wanted to make sure he got there first.
