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.
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.
