I also picked up a guitar and played it after not playing for fifteen years. In Junee I played a couple of songs with the Tin Shack Rattlers!!!!
We became the vertical bowling champions in the Junee licorice factory beating the Aussies!!!
I visited an Embroiderers Guild branch at Mount Eliza on the Mornington Penninsula. it was lovely to see that they do much the same kind of embroidery as we do in the UK although they possibly don't have quite as easy access to supplies as we do.
We did a lot of travelling and it now seems a lifetime ago.
