THURSDAY 12th APRIL: Shane and Eilishe picked us up at 0730 for the Airport - they have really spoiled us this 4 days, both in hospitality and in generosity. Lent us one of their cars, fed us a couple of dinners, and took us to different locations on each of our days in Tasmania.
I woke through the night with an exceedingly sore throat, could barely talk by morning, and have been very unwell all day. Visited the Pharmacy on our arrival at Melton, and got some medication - rested all afternoon, as I hope to be well enough tomorrow to have the two boys overnight while Sharon and Ken go to the footy.
Our motel is right in the centre of the Melton shops, so we will be spoilt for choice of meals whilst here - and Shaz and Ken are only 4.5kms away at their friends' place.
We shared rental of a Kia Carnival at the Airport for the 3 days - we were told that it would be an $80 taxi fare to and from here and the airport!! Worked out a lot cheaper to hire!!
FRIDAY 13th APRIL: Walked to the nearest Medical Centre and am now on an antibiotic and a steroid - severe lower throat infection/chest infection etc etc - back to bed and stayed there until SATURDAY 14th APRIL, when Sharon and Ken collected us, dropped us off at the FORMULE1 Hotel at the Airport, they took off for Frankston to see Ken's Nanna, and we wandered into terminals to have a bite of lunch before resting during the afternoon. A very early start again tomorrow morning, but back to my bed for tomorrow night!!! Must continue to improve as we leave on Friday for Albany.
Has been a wonderful holiday overall - just cheesed off at finishing up this way, but could be worse!!
See you on our next "Adventure" - ALbany, here we come..............
