SATURDAY 2 SEPTEMBER BROOME
In the morning, J tried to phone daughter R but got the answering machine and left a message.
We went to the markets and bought some vegetables. Then did the shopping that didn’t happen yesterday. I wanted to go to the book exchange to stock up a little, but John wanted to go straight back to the van so he could watch the football final on TV.
After that was over, we drove around Broome to see if any of the fuel depots were open. They weren’t, so we bought the more expensive fuel from a servo – $1.10cpl.
We did the usual preliminary pack up.
John tried phoning R again – still no answer. He left another message.
Tea was roast pork – very nice and lean.
