FRIDAY MAY 21 GOL GOL TO BENDIGO 410kms
We were up at 8am, away at 9.30.
It was a routine drive, done so many times before, to Bendigo.
Fuelled at Sea Lake. Lunch was at a rest area near Culgoa – a pleasant spot, but very littered. There were very few locusts about now. The cold weather must have accounted for them.
Reached Bendigo right on school finishing time. Had just finished backing into the driveway, when daughter and grandson arrived home.
I’d had our mail re-directed here, for the trip duration, to save having to ask a favour of the flat tenant. Grandson had been responsible for collecting it from the box and storing it. John paid him $20 for doing this, then tried to work out what his daily rate of pay had been. The kid was a bit young, yet, for that sort of maths.
Daughter was concerned to hear that helping with her resume had inadvertently led to John “breaking” his laptop.
Fish and chips for tea, which we bought.
