First small step on our odyssey which will eventually see us circumnavigate the world. We left home early this morning after a final check that all electrical items had been switched off and windows and doors secured.
Quite an easy trip to Queanbeyan where we chanced to meet up with an old mate as we were about to order a coffee, what should have been 15 minutes at most turned into an hour. Boy !! we can talk.
Quick visit to the Outdoor Centre to purchase a pair of hiking boots for each of us. Good quality comes at a surprisingly high price.
Then on to the Southern Cross Club for the main purpose of this early start. We visited the District Lifestyle Retirement expo to talk with the manager of Linton Village, Yass. We've decided that our next land-based address will be there and just wanted to sound out price and potential availability. Jenny has indicated that an 18 month to 2 year time-frame would be appropriate. It looks very promising so now the down-sizing will need to be addressed seriously. Spent an informative half hour chatting then had a quick lunch at the club.
Called in at the supermarket for some sustenance for this evening and breakfast in the morning before checking into the Motel for our overnight stay. Surprisingly there was FREE WiFi available so grabbed this opportunity to update the blog.
The camera hasn't been out of the bag today but there's a "filler" that may interest you at http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-08-25
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
