Quiet part of the South Bank

Decided to go to a shopping outlet (DFO) to try and get me a suitable jumper for our trip to Tassie. It was a poignant moment to see the C.O.'s eyes light up. Following instructions, we trammed into the city. When we got off, we were in the middle of a building site and absolutely lost. Not even the city map appeared to help. We espied a gang of tram drivers coming off shift and asked them how we could get to the DFO. They were very helpful and gave us explicit instructions on how to navigate to building site. It worked!!. I was very glad of the C.O.'s extensive shopping experience. I was a fish out of water. Got a Tassie jumper and went for lunch on the South bank of the Yarra river.

Decided to do a bit of sunbathing so we went to St. Kilda beach. The sky was slightly overcast and the wind was blowing. So being British we hunkered down on the beach expecting the clouds to clear and the wind to stop. Neither thing happened. After about half an hour, I enquired of the C.O. how much fun she was having. We

walked back to the appartment.

Packing for our short trip to Adelaide. Only essential kit allowed as only taking cabin bag.

In the words on John Denver:-

" Our pods are packed and we are ready to go......"

"We are leaving on a jet plane". Hope it is a jet plane. Do not want a propeller phobia incident with the C.O.
