THURSDAY 16 MARCH     STANLEY

We decided to extend our stay here. Our neighbours told us they had driven the Western Explorer route as a day trip, so we decided to do that, too, now we knew it was do-able that way.

There were some sunny patches today – things improving!

It turned into a cleaning morning. I washed the clothes and cleaned the inside of the van. John washed Truck and some of the van outside.

After lunch, John drove to Smithton – 25kms away but the nearest bowls club – for a practice. He came back excited because they asked him to be a sub in a pennant match on Saturday. It has been quite a while since he’s had any bowls.

Tea was soup and fried rice.

While we were eating tea, a man came round and told John the other Saturday bowls team had forfeited – so the pennant excitement was short-lived. However John now had the choice of a big practice instead, on Saturday afternoon, or/and? a mixed social game on Sunday afternoon. We will see what the weather is like – whether it is favourable for some of the touring that is still to be done.

R phoned to say she has obtained a job with a law firm – good news!
