Cycling for Augmented & Alternate Communication

We were very lucky this week to host some very special guests – Skye Wattie, his mom Gail, and their new-found-friend, Janice.  Since May, Skye has been cycling across Canada, raising funds and awareness for vital Augmented & Alternative Communication services, supports and technology.  Please check out their website:  Kilometres for Communication for more information!

Janice, Gail & Skye at the Belgravia Bed & Breakfast in Truro!

Camping for much of their journey, I think they were happy to find a comfortable bed, hot shower and plentiful breakfast here at the Belgravia Bed & Breakfast!  Skye & Janice, (having just met!) spent the evening chatting and tuning up their bicycles on our back deck, before storing them in our locked basement for the night.

For breakfast, we made sure that they would be well-fueled for the 100km ride from Truro to Halifax.  They had fresh local strawberries & yogurt, muffins, juice, Eggs Florentine and a side order of four extra (just delivered!) farm-fresh scrambled eggs.

D’Arcy was sure to get a few photos as they set out for the day:

Getting final travel details sorted out!

Heading down the driveway...

And they're off!

We will be following the rest of their adventures through their website & blog:  Kilometresforcommunication.wordpress.com and we encourage you to as well!  Janice should by now be heading home to Toronto to be with her family, and Skye & Gail will be continuing on to Newfoundland where Skye will complete his journey in St. John’s, on August 4th.

Safe & happy travels – we hope to meet again!
