Another week just seems to have slipped by, somehow. Bowls last Tuesday evening was another success, with my team winning second prize. Edge Hill have recently laid a new surface, which is much more user friendly and runs about 14 seconds as compared to 18 seconds last year.
We had a couple of proper outings this week, one to the Botanic Gardens on a very hot day – it was very pleasant wandering under the trees and there always seems to be something different flowering. We also had a drive to Palm Cove, which was surprisingly very busy and very windy. Far too windy, in fact, to actually walk along the sand. For the first time ever, we saw the stinger warning flag flying and we amazed that about a dozen people were actually swimming, totally ignoring the warning – and the crocodiles!
We enjoyed a farewell lunch at Cazaly’s today with Jenny and Brian before they head to the Tablelands tomorrow. Afterwards, we made the usual donation to Cazaly’s funds, although Himself did manage to bring home a large handful of washing machine money!
The weather has continued fine and hot, although the last couple of nights have been rather cool with the temperature dropping to around the 15 degree mark.
