The Decemberists Day 6

Posted: December 8, 2017 in Travel

Solid rain throughout the night and still moist this morning . Change of pace today as the tourist part of week comes to a halt and we celebrate family . Luckily with this family there won’t be any noticeable drop off in drinking . A short 40 minute drive to Eltham means we have to fill in the morning somehow. Luckily Healesville has as many nail salons as pubs so that is 45 minutes sorted . Not sure what CLP will do though

Our short stay in Healesville was very pleasant and relaxing. We now leave our more salubrious accomodation of last few nights for a more standard “ motor inn”. We did apparently book a Queen Spa suite though so who knows . Of course in Eltham a Spa may simply mean the shower is installed upside down.

Good run down to Eltham as weather started to clear and even though arrived at 11:30 our room was ready . First knob kiss of the day . Room looks fine and as a pleasant day now even had time for a swim as we met various relatives and friends already here

Walked up to small shopping centre 300m up the road for a quick bite of lunch which was harder to achieve then it really should be . A slow focaccia and a bottle of water will do for now. A quite relaxing afternoon in preparation for a long night . Or short morning .

Only had to walk across road to Ballara Reception Complex and it is a beautiful setting and the weather had been kind

First surprise of the night was the engagement party became a wedding! Great service for a great couple. A few speeches and yummo food and we were away. Great to catch up with nephews and nieces etc but I didn’t mingle too much as was waiting for the dancing and dint want a full card. I need not have been concerned. As always the time passes so quickly and before you know it the lights are back on and the doors locked. A wonderful night and a short stumble home

Alcohol Update 12:01 am. Help

Officially a tad seedy this morning . Must have been the food because I only had one bottle all night . Honest
