SATURDAY 1 MAY      MILDURA

I went to the shops for the papers while John had some sleep in time.

Today was a day of organizing travel stuff.

John changed a wheel on Truck. The tyre on it was quite worn, so he switched it with the spare. He did assorted other Truck things. He was very pleased that he was able to fix the dead switches on the back spotlight we have mounted there, and on the air compressor. He painted up some of the black bits too.

I did some oddments of washing, including the most recently used bowls gear.

Read the papers for a while. Cooked up a vegie soup and stewed apple and rhubarb, to use up the remaining stocks, since we will go through the quarantine check point tomorrow.

We did a final short walk along the river at dusk and admired the sunset colours on the water.
