FRIDAY 21 APRIL     HEALESVILLE

My daughter turned 28, this day.

We were up fairly early and drove to Lilydale, to be there by 9am, for bowls.  I left John there and went back to camp, where I pottered about for the rest of the morning.

Drove back to Lilydale and met friend T at the York on Lilydale hotel, for lunch. Much of the talk was about his future, post retirement,  housing options – build, rent, house, unit, retirement complex? And where? He was considering Brisbane or Hobart, and we discussed the pros and cons of each.

After lunch, we went and walked around the Lilydale Lake – something he had never done before.

I went to the bowls club and sat in Truck, waiting for John. I watched him bowl for a while. The man they had teamed him with was not very good, so clearly John was not having a great day.

It appeared, on my travels up and down the highway today, that Truck indicators had started to play up and were blowing fuses, which then affected the working of various gauges. John replaced the blown fuses when we got back to camp.

Tea was bought fish and chips.

Posted 126kms today, going back and forth.
