2007 Travels September 10

MONDAY 10 SEPTEMBER     EIGHTY MILE BEACH

I walked on the beach first thing in the morning.

High tide was happening during the mornings and this seemed to be the time to fish. In the afternoons, the water was too far out, and it was dark by the time it really came close enough.

It was a bit windy today and no one was catching any fish.

John had now decided that he wanted to be able to watch ALL the AFL football finals on TV, so he wanted our timing of home travel legs to enable that, by being where there was a good TV signal whenever there was a match. He indicated he was now finding the trip boring, and wanted to be able to do what really interested him – watch TV! This would really constrain what we could do and where we could still go, as well as limiting the remaining time we could spend here. To me, that was a real pity.

  2. It’s declarations like that, that usually end with “ I think we came home too soon” when the complainee reaches the Victorian border and the cold rain becomes a reality.
