Travels with the Winnie: Day 19

Lunch with Glenys

Today we met up with an old friend for lunch. She used to visit Jeff Carroll from time to time and we enjoyed her company very much. She insisted on paying for today’s lunch as she feels we had her to dinner many times when she was visiting Perth and it was a chance to return to hospitality.

She doesn’t come into the city very much, so finding a place to eat was a matter of luck. We chanced upon a Thai restaurant which happened to have a Thai chef, the food was excellent. Glenys chose to try a whole fish, which she and I shared and Stephen finished off, we also had a salad and Stephen had steamed brisket.

Afterwards we found a quieter place for coffee and cake. We talked the whole time about our lives – by 4.00 p.m. we were getting a little hoarse!

Before and after meeting with her, Stephen and I took the free circular bus to get a feel for the city. There is an inner circle and outer circle, and we were on the one that went to a stop in North Adelaide, which is about 1.5 kms from here.

It was a beautiful sunny day, but became quite chilly by 5.00 p.m. when we were walking home.
