SATURDAY 13 MARCH     TATHRA

I woke up with a headache – too much of that wine! John was feeling seedy all day, so we did not do much. He read – finished a novel.

I walked up the hill to the newsagents – punishing myself! Bought the Saturday Age and Weekend Australian, and read those for the rest of the morning.

After lunch, we walked along the beach to the Inlet, and back along the cycle path.  We watched people catching mullet and big flathead in the channel of the inlet entrance.

We spotted a bird new to us in the bush by the inlet. It made a whip like noise and when we got back to camp used the bird book to identify it as a male Eastern Whipbird. We also saw a huge black spider and wondered if it was a funnelweb? Certainly, it looked very anti-social!

There were thunderstorms building and it rained a little on us, but we got back before the worst rain hit.

I cooked barley soup.

Tea was the last of the tomato soup,  Chicken breast poached in lemon juice, garlic and spring onions, with some vegies. Rockmelon to follow.

The thunder and lightning lasted into the night.
