Woke to misty weather. Our trip to the caves and Pilgrems rest had to be cancelled as the driving would be too dangerous going into the mountains with the dense mist, disappointing but we will take the opportunity to explore the estate.

... at the thought of getting the bandage (that he forced me to put) on his arm, off. I then began to run more errands like delivering batteries, picking up people, dropping them off, going here and there. I finally got to have lunch at about 1400 and after that I went for a quick check of the Eastern Line. I don't mind doing that run, it's easy and after it's done one of that tracks never fails to deliver a few animals. This was almost my therapy for a shocking day. I found ...
