It was a hot, blue sky day, that reached 30 degrees. There was some occasional cloud building in the distance, but that dissipated.

John slept in until 10am. Before he got up, I did the washing, then after he was out of it, stripped the bedding and went and washed that. There is a sign in the laundry warning about theft of clothes from lines here. It is a very public caravan park, with people walking through, on their way to the beach, all the time. The local paper indicates that there is quite a bit of theft from parked vehicles too.

After late breakfast, we went to the bowls club, and practiced, until 1pm. It was very hot work.

After lunch at the van, relaxed through the afternoon, as it was hot and a little bit humid. John read. I got the washing in, made up the bed, then sewed.

At 5pm, we went for a walk on the beach. There was less direct sun at that time of day, to affect John’s burned feet. Got back at 6.

It was too hot to do much cooking, so we had soup, which was easy to reheat. Then tinned smoked tuna, mashed potato, and salad. We had bananas for dessert – from John’s purchase the other day. They were very yummy ones. It was a nice, cool tea – makes a change to need it this way.

John says we will go visit one of the more distant National Parks tomorrow – Dorrigo seems like a good idea.

I worked on my diary write ups until 10.30pm and then went to bed, but John stayed up, on the computer game, until 2.30am.
