SATURDAY 2 OCTOBER    HEALESVILLE

John had bowls at Lilydale in the afternoon, so after an early lunch we drove there. He went to bowls, I had a lovely walk around the Lilydale Lake – about 3kms. Then I brought Truck back to Healesville.

Did a bit of food shopping in the town, bought papers.

Spent some time reading the weekend papers, then it was time to go collect John from bowls. He was happy because he’d played well.

We drove on to his daughter R’s, in Carlton, for tea. She was pleased to see us but was not feeling too well, after a big night out, last night! This was the first time we had seen her flat.

Tea was ricotta ravioli with pumpkin sauce, and rice pudding for desert. All suitably mushy for me! For which I was very grateful to R.

John gave R his sister’s opal pendant.

We were ordered out at about 9.30! The long drive back to Healesville was quite good, at that time – too early for the crowds from pubs, theatres and the like. All that running around today tallied up 199kms.
