On the last day of the girls' visit they took us to a lovely restaurant by the bay at Manly. We were given a super table right next to the windows overlooking the marina.

I have just had the best birthday surprise. Our two daughters flew from Melbourne to stay with us for a week as a surprise birthday present. We were not expecting them to come as they came to our eightieth birthdays last year and February this year. As air fares are so high these days we didn't think they would come. But the girls came and left the menfolk behind including the boys.
They have cooked and cleaned and helped entertain friends because we had invited long time family friends, Ben and Lyn, to stay for a few days not knowing the girls were coming, so we had a house full. There was a lot of laughter eating and drinking and fun. Ben and Bill migrated from Switzerland together as young men in 1967. Ben and Lyn have moved around Australia and Queensland quite a lot. They are at Curra now about 3 hours drive north of Brisbane.

A small group of us from the Village Art Group caught the bus into the city to see the Banksy Exhibition in the Queens Plaza. We contemplated using a scooter to get to the Plaza (only joking).
