Where I stayed

We had the Jucy packed and ready to roll by 06h50, believe it or not, and got going on the road. Al drove down the pass to Mount Beauty and then on to Bright through Mount Buffalo National Park, but the early morning was too much for him, so he handed over to the girls and slept on the bed in the back of the van the rest of the way to Melbourne.

We made our deadline and got the van back to Jucy before midday and stopped for a delicious lunch in an little deli/restaurant in Chapel Street before getting home. The builders had been in to fix the bathroom ceiling while we were away, and the washing machine (which stands in the bathroom) had paint on it and there was cement filler all over the place, so Deb & Bron stripped the bathroom and spring cleaned, while Al sat in the sun on the veranda reading the paper.

We had decided to make Cornish Pasties for dinner, so Bron and Al went off to buy some rump and pie plates and to collect Col from work. On the way home Bron had a beauty parlour appointment, so the boys sat on the pavement at a pub and enjoyed the sun & a couple of low calorie beers.

Pasty making was then the order of the day and the Pasty Team got going making pastry, cutting up meat, potatoes & onion and generally making a major mess in the kitchen. Two hours later we sat down to enjoy the first batch of pasties while the second batch cooked followed by two "Cornish Pies." Another delicious meal!!!
