Day 144 - Wednesday 26 September 2012

Melbourne

We waited for David's camera to be delivered which happened at about 11:00 am, then David spent some time examining his new camera, a Pentax K30 DSLR with an 18-55 lens. The second lens, a 55-300 telephoto lens will be delivered in another week or so. The added advantage of splitting the delivery keeps the price of the first consignment under $1,000, so no GST. David also has a 35-105 lens from an old film camera that will work with this camera as Pentax has a practice of making cameras that can use all old Pentax auto focus lenses.

Later we made a visit to Bunnings in Hawthorne for a few bits and pieces so David could carry out a few maintenance jobs at Kirrily's place. When we drove into their carpark, which has its own traffic lights to let cars in and out, we noticed that the max height was 2.1 metres and we are 2.25 metres, so had to disrupt the taffic flow while we did a U-turn. we eventually found a parking space in the street about 300 metres away.

David spent the rest of the afternoon fixing the watering system and doing a few other maintenace jobs, while Di prepared Peri Peri Chicken for dinner - and very nice it was too! Kirrily works a long day and was home about 7:30 pm. She said that she likes coming home to a cooked dinner!
