A rueful day today being the funeral of Linda’s sister Cheryl. Linda is in Tassie for the funeral, but with regrets I am still in Brisbane, unable to attend because of health commitments. I am very much thinking of Peter, husband, and Maxine and Sandra, sisters, and will be all day and well into the future.
Friday 29th August 2001, Beachmere.
The funeral For Linda’s sister is on Tuesday so Linda is booked on a flight on Monday and will return on Thursday next week. I unfortunately can’t go because I have things to do with my upcoming small operation and can’t get away.
For those who regularly read this web site you may have noticed some strange post names in some areas of the site, I am hopeful of having fixed the problem, and if you hadn’t noticed then don’t worry about it.
New South Wales
Thursday 1st March 2001, (Eden).
Well Hello New South Wales, we are now camped at Eden and I think the name speaks for itself. When we came over the mountains toward Eden there was almost a view, obstructed by trees, very much like coming over St Mary’s pass on the east coast of Tassie looking over the coast line, very picturesque and a good look at a lot of the coastline and beaches. It is a pity the trees are so tall because I am sure the view would have been rather spectacular. There seems to be heaps to do around this area so we are already talking about staying longer than the seven days that we are already booked in for.Anyway today was the usual first day in a new township by setting up camp, having a quick look around the town and visiting the local information centre for tourist information. The little elderly woman at the info centre turned out to be a wealth of knowledge about the area and started to cram us with details, even distances to places, so we had to stop her before we started to forget what she was telling us. We appeased her by saying that we would return if and when we need more info about other things to do.
That’s about all for today, as I must now try to work out a problem with my mobile phone working on the Internet so I can decide whether or not to upgrade to another later model.
