As I was walking the other morning I caught a glance of George and Dulcie Thomas, our neighbours in Hamilton for around 20 years. After a bit of investigating we finally tracked them down, they are holidaying here for 3 months. It was great to catch up with them and we spent some time reminiscing about our days in Hamilton. We met for lunch yesterday and again enjoyed our time together.
As Ray was walking from the van he spotted 2 whales swimming about 100 metres from shore. They put on an amazing display and remained in the area for a few hours
At one stage there were 13 vans in the park and they were all from Victoria. If it's the warm weather they are seeking they must be disappointed as it has rained all day, the park is nearly flooded. Thank God the van has proved its worth and is still waterproof.
I did a 9km walk the other day, hoping for a miracle loss of weight. I was OK until I sat down but when I tried to stand up I thought I would never walk again. Fortunately there is a heated pool and spa at the park and after a good soak I was as good as new, of course no loss of weight.
We are off to Eden tomorrow, our shortest distance between stays, and also our second last stop off before home. We are getting very excited and are looking forward to catching up with family and friends.
