FRIDAY 10 JULY TOWNSVILLE
John went for a walk around the camp ground, before his breakfast. I did not. I had a sore foot, and had to bowl later.
We drove into town, to The Lakes area, to Toyworld, to hunt for a Thomas the Tank Engine toy for grandson, as an extra reward for him tackling the Read-a-thon. I knew he wanted Bertie the Bus, or Bill and Ben engines, but John found a train washing station, on special – half price. After a quick phone consult with daughter, we got that. The register put it through at full price, which we didn’t notice until the credit docket had been processed. It then seemed easier just to get a second one to put aside for one of the other grandsons, for Xmas, rather than go through the hassle of reversing the credit card charge. Apparently the washing stations had been on special until last Sunday – but no one had taken down the sign. Lucky us.
Went to bowls at the Jubilee Club, in the afternoon. We played adequately and the afternoon was pleasant.
We were told that this was very mild for a Townsville winter – it should be hotter!
Barra and fries for tea.
