2000 Travels November 12


It was still windy in the morning.

Before John woke up, I walked to town to buy the Weekend Australian. It was a good walk.

After breakfast, we went for a short drive, along the coast to the south, to Red Bluff Lookout. As we left the town, could see Red Bluff looming as a rise in the distance.

From the Bluff there were good views back along the coast to the north, along the cliffs. It was a bit hazy though. We could see over the town and the river mouth. This looked as though the entrance could be rather hazardous for boats.

The day was hotter and more humid than I would have expected.

After lunch, John went to bowls.

I read the paper and made a batch of gazpacho. I phoned V and had a good chat, mostly about Hamelin. There seem to have been some changes since their time there, but not major ones.

John had a pleasant time at bowls and won a bowls polishing cloth with the Kalbarri club logo on it.

I found out that we’d only won a $29 prize in the Lotto draw of 11/11. So much for the theory of lucky numbers!

Tea was gazpacho, and citrus stir fry pork with cashews. Nice.
