Thank You Ronald McDonald Family Retreats

In January we travelled to Forster to spend a week at the Ronald McDonald Family Retreat. We rarely take holidays as it's difficult to get away from the farm. Thankfully a friend came to stay and take care of our stock and most importantly Taz's puppy raising family offered to take her back for any holidays.
Ronald McDonald Charities last year offered Starlight families access to their retreats, which I noticed had two locations with wheelchair access, so with many friends who holiday at Forster, we thought we would jump at the chance to try it out.
We weren't disappointed with a fantastic wheelchair accessible cabin right on the marina, easily walking distance to shops, beach wheelchair, parking spots, friendly people, lovely beach and great weather. The day we drove home was when all the rain came up north.
The first night there was tears from Missy about missing Taz but she got pass that until the last day when she couldn't wait to pick her up on the way home.
I'll let the photos tell the story of our fantastic holiday.

  1. Foster looks like a lovely place to holiday. It was great to hear that you had good weather. It sounds like Missy has bonded really well with Tas, we hope the same for Harri when our puppy arrives.
