Life After – January 2021

124/01/2021 (Sunday) – Feel like a dogs breakfast. PN. Headache. Woke three times through the night and early this morning coughing again, I guess the Senega isn’t helping that much after all…bugger!
No walk today – too hot and windy again already 32°C at 07:30hrs.

25/01/2021 (Monday) – Feel better but tired today. PN. Headache. Woke through the night coughing and had a couple of puffs of Ventolin. Had difficulty getting back to sleep.

The air is full of smoke this morning from the bushfires in the Adelaide Hills.
Feel so sorry for the people affected and hope the fireries get it under control sooner rather than later (hats off to those brave people).

26/01/2021 (Tuesday) – Feel OK today. PN. Headache. Coughing not as bad as it has been.
Walked the Esplanade today.

27/01/2021 (Wednesday) – Feel OK today. PN. Headache. Cough is still persistant.
Sandy took Biggles and I for our walk along the Esplanade – my daily exercise.

28/01/2021 (Thursday) – Feel OK today. PN. Headache. Cough is still persistant though it seems to have changed – drier than previously and more intermittent. Went for my obligatory walk along the Esplanade. 
Today is the anniversary of Craig’s passing from Rhabdomyosarcoma. (RIP my son).

29/01/2021 (Friday) – Feel OK today. PN. Headache. Cough – what can I say!
Off to Glencoe for a long weekend to catch up with two of my sisters (Julia and Jane). Sandy and I will be stopping at Robe tonight and off to Mt. Gambier on Saturday.

30/01/2021 (Saturday) – Feel OK today. PN. Headache. Cough – what can I say!
The trip to Robe was enjoyable. Had a look at the Obelisk that is synomous to Robe.

The Obelisk was erected on Cape Dombey in 1852, it was used to navigate entrance into Guichen Bay and to store rocket lifesaving equipment.
The firing of rockets carrying baskets to distressed ships to bring passengers ashore saved many lives.
Later it assisted passing ships with navigation, standing at a height of 12 metres it is easily visible 20 kilometres out to sea.

The Obelisk – Built in 1852

In 1862, after complaints by the Captains that the then white Obelisk was difficult to differentiate from Long Beach’s white sand hills, it was repainted in alternate red and white bands. Unfortunately the sandstone beneath it is being eroded by the sea and no doubt it will eventually collapse into the ocean. Robe is a great little town.

Drove down to Mt. Gambier and got stopped in Millicent for a road-side breathalyser.
After we booked into the motel (Motel Mount Gambier) we drove to Julia’s place in Glencoe then we all went to Jane and David’s place for dinner.

31/01/2021 (Sunday) – Feel OK today. PN. Headache. Cough – still persistent but appears to be easing.
Off to Glencoe to visit Julia. Had an enjoyable afternoon, Jane and David came over for dinner.
Felt a bit knackered when Sandy and I got back to the motel.
