Road trip to pick up Pearl ...

We headed for Melbourne today, leaving at 1.30pm but only got about 15kms out the road when Gus looked in the side mirror and noticed the left hand side canopy door on Ruby was open!  On inspection, we'd lost a big plastic bag containing a new skillet, saucepan, two nice melamine bowls and a large plastic tray to drain dishes on.
We back tracked nearly all the way into back into town then saw the bag and contents strewn diwn the roadside! Haha!
The tray had a corner knocked off it, both bowls were broken, the saucepan was bent out of shape and the skillet had gravel rash! Oops!

We stopped for lunch in Penola so that delayed us a bit.  I drove Ruby from Coleraine to Ararat so Gus could make some calls.  We continued on and got to Ballarat without incident. With about an hour to go it was time for a G&T for me!

We arrived at our hotel at 8.40pm and it was 10.9C and raining heavily.  Somehow, I don't think we'll be sitting outside our new camper sunning ourselves on Friday and Saturday.

Room service dinner, a glass of red and nighty nights!  We have a big day tomorrow, heading up the Hume Highway to Bateman's Bay.

Cheers - Joolz xx
