We left home at 20 to 10 on Wednesday November. Stopped at Cann River, Pelican cafe, for petrol and lunch.
Arrived Eden 2:40. Approximatley 3 1/4 hours travel time.
Bill set up the van while I restred with my feet up as ankles had swelled a little.
Went to the Golf Club for dinner. We shared a spring roll entree and a fried rice. I had pork with plum sauce - yummy. Bill had curried scallops.
Spent and lost a few dollars on the pokies.
Back to the van, where Bill had a fit of the coughs.
Thursday 22nd November:
Sat outside the van after breakfast. Did some knitting.
Had an early lunch of sandwiches. Went to the $2.00 shop and spent over $100. Bought some acrylic paints and paper, brushes etc. I feel the urge to paint.
We went to the Great White Bite for coffee, lime spider and chips. Then to Bi-Lo to get a few groceries.
Went to the Fisherman's Club for dinner. Bill had fish and chips, I had smoke salmon salad again.
Didn't waste any money on the pokies.
Salty had the runs in the car again, another mess for poor Bill to clean up. (Seem to have forgotten to mention the first mess earler in the day.)
Friday 23rd November:
A beautiful day - we spent the whole day sitting outside the van - didn't want to risk taking Salty anywhere in the car.
Bill went down the street to get a pencil and some milk. I knitted, read, and even painted. Bill did a painting too - neither were very good!
We had tea in the van - fillet steak, colelsaw and mashed potato. Bill tried out the new tabletop bbq. Seems to be excellent.
Saturday 24th November:
I felt a bit off today - just a bit nauseaous. Stayed on the bed after I got dressed and had breakfast. Dozed, but didn't really sleep. Had a couple of crackers and cream cheese for lunch.
|Settler's Cottage as it was before sale to new owners|
We had baked beans and left over steak for tea in the van. I still wasn't feeling 100%.
Sunday 25th November:
Not feeling at all well today. Bill offered to go home, but I decided to stay. Spent the day on the bed with a sick bag. Also got a bit of diaorrhea.
It was Brittany's birthday today. She had let us know that she wouldn't be home until after lunch, so we left it until then to ring her. She had texted us on Thursday morning to say her parcel had arrived that morning. Excellent service, since we only posted it on our way out on Wednesday.
Bill packed up as much of the van as he could so we could get away early tomorrow.
Monday 26th November:
Left the park by about 9:30 I think. I wasn't very well at all, in fact Bill said I was as white as a sheet for most of the trip. We didn't stop anywhere for lunch, because we were home by about 12:30ish.
