Our host, my brother-in-law Robert, had an accident on his bicycle six years ago today. It’s a Happy Anniversary because he survived it! Every year he returns to the scene, so today he brought his mom and me along. It happened here in Coogee.
The car in the foreground was coming the same way as the car six years ago, and didn’t slow or stop coming into the roundabout. Robert was coming down the hill and already most of the way through the roundabout when it hit him. He was slammed up against the brick wall of a little convenience store on the opposite corner.
He was in a coma and suffered a major brain injury, but his recovery has been amazing. He works hard at it, and he gets better all the time. Actually, I can’t really tell much of a difference. He is still active and fun. I have been driving because he doesn’t drive, but that could change in the very near future. Yay Robert!
