Day 142 - Monday 24 September 2012


We were up early again this morning for a 30 minute drive from Frankston to Trailblazers factory at Braeside. We had been having trouble with movement in a couple of seams at the front of the caravan. After Phil from Trailblazers had had a look at the van he decided that he would need the van for about 3 days to strenghten the front section of the van. However he had no room in the factory for a day or so and we drove to his old factory nearby and left the van locked up there. There was no power at the old factory, so we left the van with the fridge running on gas - we hope that the gas doesn't run out as the fridge is fairly full.

After leaving the van at Braeside we drove over to Chadstone for a bit of shopping while we waited to make contact with Kirrily who was not expecting us to arrive at her place until Tuesday. We did a bit of shopping, had a coffee, some more shopping, then had lunch before deciding to go and see a movie. We went to see The Sapphires which is about an aboriginal girl band that went to Vietnam in the sixties to entertain the troops. If you have not seen it then we would thoroughly recommend it as we both really enjoyed it.

After seeing the movie we still had not heard from Kirrily, and not being certain whether she was even in Melbourne, we decided to go back to the Frankston Holiday Park and stay in one of their deluxe cabins for the night. We bought ourselves a couple of TV dinners and settled back to watch the Brownlow Medal count on TV. Jobe Watson was a very worthy winner and it is appropriate that the medal for the best and fairest player is named in honour of Charles Brownlow, a former Geelong Footbal club player and administrator. Later in the evening we caught up with Kirrily and arranged to pick up her keys from the office the next morning.

No photos today.
