SUNDAY 1 JUNE TATHRA
Day 1 of winter. It was a fine day, but rather cloudy and quite cool.
We both went and practiced bowls, in the morning. I was quite pleased with my session – on grass, and after several weeks without playing.
After lunch, we walked along the beach, to the Inlet mouth, then came back along the cycle path.
The beach sand was very soft, so walking on it was not easy. By the time we got back to the van, my suspect back was aching. I decided to take a daily Celebrex anti-inflammatory, until after the big bowls tournament was over, just in case. I carried a supply of anti-inflammatories when travelling, for “back attacks”, ever since 1993 when trying to carry on with a trip, without medication after the back began complaining, saw me ambulanced to Queenstown Hospital, in western Tasmania. I wouldn’t wish a ruptured disc on my worst enemy!
John was unsure of his plans, after here, and conscious that he had heard no more from daughter. We had only paid for two nights here, so could move on tomorrow. He was not very happy. It did feel to me like being in a bit of a limbo.
