SATURDAY 10 JANUARY     BALLARAT

We had a little sleep in on a cool, grey morning.

After breakfast, we rode around the Lake, then to the shops for lunch rolls and the weekend papers. 10.3kms cycled.

After lunch, John went off to bowls.

Our very first camp – all set up

I made phone calls – both to former work colleagues who now live in the area. Arranged to meet S and M and their children at the Gardens for a picnic lunch on Tuesday.  GB came round for a while, later in the afternoon, with a friend. G said we should not drink the local water in Beaufort or Daylesford – neither is of an acceptable standard; through her current work she knows such things. We will have a counter tea on Wednesday with G and husband.

After the visitors left, I read the papers.

We had an early tea – salad and tinned fish. Another tin gone!

Went for a walk in the Botanic Gardens until dusk – really pleasant.

Somehow, Truck did 24kms today.
