FRIDAY 5 MARCH HAWKS NEST
John had to make sure he was up at a reasonable hour, in order to go to morning bowls.
I walked to the shops, bought some fresh foodstuffs and withdrew some cash. Then I walked on the beach and took some photos. It was hard walking as the sand was very soft. There were quite a few people on the beach, as today is Newcastle Show Day and thus it is a long weekend for people from those parts.
John did not win at bowls. He’d topped up the diesel on the way back – 79cpl.
We lazed around camp after lunch as John wanted to read. I did the layout and cutting to start the first of the eight Hardanger placemats I am making for S.
I phoned J at Rubyvale. She received the ring, it has been repaired and is on its way back to our home. Also phoned a caravan park on the Sydney outskirts and booked us in for tomorrow night.
We went for a short walk on the beach. The hard going in the soft sand mitigated against a long walk.
Tea was soup, salmon cakes, fruit.
A year ago was John’s farewell dinner from his school community. I can’t believe how fast that year seems to have gone!
