Last Sunday we ventured to Langwarrin to see off the nephew who is going to live in Glasgow for two years, via, Bangkok, Cambodia, Laos, Bangkok, Helsinki, London. It was ok. We lasted an hour and a half and brother had lit a fire in the back yard to warm everyone. It was quite some fire and just getting going as we were leaving. More people were coming.
Weren't we lucky. We travelled on Eastlink on the first day that they started charging tolls. It is a beautiful road though. So smooth. So easy. We saw the art work, a bird eating a worm and the highrise motel and the fallen down electric pylon?
Approximate road tolls for the weekend, Citylink on Saturday night to go to the brother friends, and again on Sunday and Eastlink, $28.
I bought shares in Crown Casino in the early days and made a killing when I sold them. The profit paid for our trip to Vietnam. I hated Citylink when it was built, just as I hated the Crown Casino and still do, but I wish I had bought shares in Citylink.
