Development gone mad and other matters

A few days ago we took a drive up the coast and were horrified to see how much bushland has been destroyed in order for hundreds more houses to be built, many very unsympathetically, unlike most suburban areas.

On a brighter note, I saw the physio last Thursday and she was happy with progress so I am now on one crutch and have more exercises as it seems I pulled a muscle when I fell. These extra exercises are designed to prevent the occasional pains that I have had from the pulled area. Still get occasional 'pinging' pains in my thigh, mainly after lying in bed for a while, but generally continuing to improve.

We had a lovely lunch yesterday with friends from my days with Lotteries (now called Lotterywest). Keith & Kathy were great hosts and it was great to catch up with Darrell, Marion and Moira. I hope we can see them and other old friends again before we set off.


Today we went to see Mac & Sue and enjoyed a lovely lunch with them and we were delighted to find Fiona and Kirsty there. They welcomed like part of the family, just as when we lived here and Judith worked for Mac. I am sure we shall catch up with them also before we get moving very far.


Travel plans coming along quite well now but first I have to get the all clear from the consultant whom I shall be seeing in a couple of weeks' time.

Walking on one crutch is taking some getting used to, especially as it gives more work to the injured leg. Thus far I have not walked any new record distances but am building up each time. Meanwhile, Judith is taking some lovely photos of wildlife and scenery, especially late in the day when we have had some beautiful sunsets.

We are making good use of the restaurant which is about 10 paces from our cabin...
