MONDAY 28 – WEDNESDAY 30 AUGUST     HOWARD SPRINGS

The days were spent just hanging about, waiting.

John slept in, played computer games. I read, walked, went swimming, sewed.

The highlight of our days was happy hour, sitting outside, watching the antics of the neighbouring peacocks – especially their nightly ritual of settling into the trees, with much jockeying for position, and trying out different trees and perches. It was surprisingly entertaining!

Plenty of shade and privacy here

We drove into Darwin one day. I wanted to go to Spotlight to get some materials for my Hardanger embroidery. At Casuarina, we browsed the shops and I bought a couple of computer books – on Windows and Excel, having decided that I really should update my computer skills, anyway. At Berrimah, John bought some work shorts, in anticipation of mango shed work.
