          Well we spent a happy morning wandering through lanes & arcades - especially enjoying the artistic graffiti! On the way we checked our route with one of the many helpful city volunteers who looked & sounded familiar...after chatting realised he was the brother of one of my old TAFE teacher mates & uncle of our local member (very strong …

          Very early start saw us arriving in quaint Queenscliff in good time to join half a dozen vehicles waiting for the 8am ferry to Sorrento! Wow what an impressive vessel! Such a smooth crossing of 40mins & some posh homes along the way! Highly recommended trip - we'll be back again Thursday and then crossing again with vans on Fri! …

          Needless to say the GS has been on our bucket list for years & it didn't disappoint! Glorious setting in the Carlton Gardens & the regal Exhibition …

          ... accounts was just as delicious as the first time we visited The Lackners and a pleasant evening was had by all! For the Sunday Vicky just spent the day relaxing in the house with the ladies out at work until I came home in the early hours of Monday morning. As mentioned earlier I'd been to Sydney to play on the semi final of our champions of champions up competition - unfortunately losing 3-0 on Sunday afternoon. The Saturday night had been spent with ...
