We are not feeling as hopeful as we previously were about being able to get away on Saturday. Our repairer is still waiting on the part from Iveco in Sydney and wasn’t very reassuring. At the moment we are not looking forward to being here for another weekend, more importantly, we would like to know that the part they are waiting for is available from Iveco Sydney and doesn’t have to come from Italy. We are hoping that Lisa, who works in the office, will know more. Stephen will phone her in the morning.
If it looks like we are here for another day we may walk out there tomorrow, it’s about 4.5 kilometres, to pick up a little more stuff. The coffee grinder and the pressure cooker come to mind. If they don’t offer a lift back we can order a taxi.
Today there was an event at the Art of Expresso coffee bar. We went by the see what it looked like, but had another agenda of walking to a nearby Arboretum. It was near the little river, a pleasant place to be on a sunny day.
As we were near the services club, we decided to have lunch there. Just a bacon and egg roll for me and a hamburger for Stephen, which were served with chips. It was quite pleasant, but we moved on to have our coffee at Wilders Bakery Cafe afterwards. Stephen actually bought a paper (he prefers if cafes supply them for customers to read) and I started processing some photos.
After an hour we wanted to get out into the fresh air again and walked down to the river to follow it along further. The track ended and we were fairly close to home. On our way to our cabin we booked in for Friday night.
Some scenes from the Arboretum Park. Fishing and reflections from the river on the tree branches.
