In DarwinIt has been over a month since my last post and will probably be the same till my next. There is not much to report while living quietly in the suburbs and I have not taken a single photo since our arrival. I have included here a synopsis of our activity since arrival.
Paul went back to work today. He was on leave all of last week and of course, the golf clubs he ordered on line, turned up this morning!!!
Paul,s car has been off the road since we arrived but we now have it back
to run about in (much easier to find parking spots than Indie!) so Ron and I went to the casino. Gordon (at Camooweal) told us about their ‘Monday Madness’. You have to be over 50 (they check your driver’s license). You join up (it’s free)and they give you $20 poker machine credit, a $5 Keno voucher, a voucher for a free drink and a voucher for $9.95 buffet lunch or dinner. It’s all only usable on the Monday. We opted for the dinner because it includes seafood. We actually won $16 on the pokies as well, so all in all a nice day out!!! Apparently, once you are a member, you get the same deal every Monday except the poker machine credit drops down to $10. After we left the casino, we drove into town and went for a walk along the esplanade. It was really lovely if not a little warm.
Paul suggested we go out for dinner.We went to ‘Salt n Peppa’ just up the road and it was lovely.
