Friday

Visited the museum yesterday which included a huge amount of stuff from PNG, including some artefacts from the Gogodala people, among whom Steve’s family lived.

There were also opals and opalised fossils, which I don’t understand at all… must read again how opals are formed!

Another super day today, the girls are playing Narnia loudly(!) thanks to the new bow and arrow set that K bought yesterday.

Looking forward to a weekend by the seaside at Victor Harbour. There are penguins to be seen, as well as the possibility of some whale-spotting, plus the usual options of walks and beaches! We’re also hoping to get up close with a koala.

Hello Lynne, I am not writing about your Aussie trip though it e=was nice to see some spots we’ve been to – eg. Kings Canyon & Uluru.
We have a C T Laugesen painting, a water colour of a boat at Jervois Quay in Wellington. It belonged to my husband;s step-mother who gave it to us for a edding present in 1977. The mount & frame were badly smoke stained but we had it cleaned up & it looks wonderful. This lady was quite arty herself & mixed in those circles. I have no idea if it is an original but thought you may know about his works. I can only find his war art on the computer. The framer here thought he was a Gisborne person but you’ve proved that wrong, but he may have lived here at some time.
It would be lovely to find out more. Cheers, Joan
