SATURDAY 6 APRIL     CANBERRA

We got up about 8.30am. It was good being in the van because we didn’t disturb the others, and we could look after ourselves as needed.

We breakfasted in the van.

John went off to bowls at 9.30am.

I walked with S and SIL to the Yarralumla shops to get the papers. S set a brisk pace!

Soon after that, S went off to a hens’ party for a friend. She got home about 7pm. SIL headed off for the matching bucks’ party.

I read the papers.

John came home about 2pm. He’d been beaten at bowls!

We went for a walk then, down to Lake Burley Griffin, where we sat for a while, looking at the scenery and the water birds. Then we followed the Lake shore around for some distance, and made our way back via Hopetoun Circuit. It was a walk of several kms and good exercise for us both.

I cooked barramundi with salsa for us, in the van, and we also had the last of the roasted pumpkin soup I’d brought from home.

After tea, we went inside and watched The Bill on TV, with S. SIL came home as it was ending. We chatted for a while, then it was back outside to the van, and to bed.
