We headed out on a walk instead, to Swallow Falls, which followed a river through mossy forests and paddocks of sheep in what was the second beautiful walk in as many days. We passed ...
I started the day with a phone call to Tom. He was driving to the coast and just wanted to check he got there safely. He was with Sue who had a unit at the coast for one more night left over from her holiday with her friend from New Zealand. She also had Pat and Aya with her as well.
