Melbourne - Day 2

Day 123 - Thursday 12 September 2013

Still showery in Melbourne this morning with a temperature range of 6 to 13 degrees - we are getting acclimatised for Hobart next week.

This morning we headed for Safety Daves at Moorabbin to try and get a replacement Reversing Mirror/Screen for our reversing camera system. The unit we have has been causing problems for some time and the screen broke while David was attempting a fix. Dave Cooper told me that they no longer sold the unit we have as it had caused a lot of problems, but he thought that he might still had a few old units that might still work. When tested none of the old units would work - probably they have Chinese time bombs to disable them when the warranty runs out. He ended up selling me a newer better unit at a discounted price, so we are happy. Only problem is the connectors do not match the old unit so we will have to get an auto electrician to sort it out when we get home.

This afternoon we drove to Northcote to see David's sister Louise. The trip should have taken about 30 minutes, but ended up taking about 45 minutes because of road closures for a fire in Georges Road. Louise was all organised and pleased to see us with nibbles for afternoon tea. They went well with the bottle of wine that we had taken. She also had lots of photos to show us of her grand-daughter Isla who is now three and a half months old. Louse is looking forward to going to Hobart in November to meet her. Zoe and Simon live at Dodges Ferry. We stayed for about an hour and a half chatting and comparing notes, which meant we had to battle the peak hour traffic on the way back to the caravan park - the return journey took an hour and a quarter.

By the way - Happy Birthday Frosty! But get ready for the cool weather it is going down to 3 degrees in Melbourne tonight.

No photos again.
