Daughter’s birthday.

The boss phoned to check the road conditions and found that the route via Gregory Downs was OK, even for ordinary vehicles. So tourists should have been  able to get in, even though the RACQ bulletins were not up to date.

However, it looked like another cyclone might be coming into the Qld coast – bit further north, right up Cape York way. That should not affect us here, but might put tourists off travel into these parts. It could be a really super-late start to the season! Which did not help us.

Ready and waiting for guests

The family left for Townsville. In their absence, the couple who had been here since January would be in charge.

John helped the men with the electrical cable laying for the new buildings. All the men were mainly working on that.

I made the salads for tea – a green mixed one, and a carrot/sultana/spring onion one, with honey, oil and lemon juice dressing, that I “invented”. It was popular – I must remember that one!

H arrived, with a group of two, on the standard company tour. It was so good to see him again.

Phoned daughter at night. Her paternal grandfather had a little stroke, last week, but it was not too severe. Those grandparents were getting on in years now. I found it sad that, since daughter’s divorce from her husband, the very rigid beliefs of her grandmother prevented any real contact between them.
