Journal Entry:
The movers came and I was just in the way, so I made myself scarce and sat in the sun reading. I came back a couple hours later, but they were still going. Helped Sarah and John paint the front room, and helped with a couple large items that had to be handed down from the second story (Mattresses and a couch), but for the most part sat in my car looking at the maps and planning my route for the next four days).

Around four I picked up Sarah's sister Prue, and we drove down the their family's ranch near the heads of Port Phillip bay. Sarah and John showed up just after we did, and I got the tour through the rose fields (it's a rose and cattle ranch) and around the house. It's a beautiful nearly all glass house (you can see through it) overlooking the bay with the rose fields to one side, and pastures on the others. Had a great barbecue and a couple nice bottles of wine, and finished off with a bottle of port.
