SATURDAY 13 JUNE     CAIRNS

John was felling better today and I am back to normal.

Drove to shops and bought the paper, some groceries and rolls.

At the book exchange, I returned some, got some more, and spent $17.

Read the paper, had an early lunch, then we went to bowls at Stratford. We played in different teams today. Just an average day. The people here are very nice, and friendly.

The cost of bowls mounts up. Apart from the fee to play each time, today we outlaid $2 on the raffle – there is always a raffle, and one feels obligated to buy tickets. The drinks one must buy for the opposing player cost us another $5.

Again, the sandflies came in, about 3pm. This time, I was prepared and had coated myself with Rid.

Tea was cheese and ham omelette and fries.
