SUNDAY 3 DECEMBER COFFIN BAY
There were some drops of rain through the night, and today was much cooler – very nice.
In the morning, I worked on the Xmas letter.
John took Truck to refuel – $1.09cpl.
After lunch, we went to bowls. The club people here seemed very nice. Gusty winds made consistent play difficult. John and I opposed each other as leads. They gave us two glasses with the club logo on, as a memento of the day – sweet of them.
Being cheap phone call day on our plan, we phoned T at Wonga Beach and had a good chat with him. They seem to still be happy there. It was great to make contact again.
Also phoned V, R and K – left messages at all three, but there was no response back. Why do we bother?
Tea was soup, leftover fish cake, some rice, salad and a tin of salmon – a real mish mash.
There was a low pressure system near Darwin that was predicted to turn into a cyclone. Since spending so much time in parts north, the occurrence of cyclones interests us far more than it used to.
