Southern Cross Station

12 Months of Grieving - Seabrook to Warrnambool

Well my Birthday came along and I decided that I couldn't stay home looking at the garden and remembering Chris and feeling sad. So I asked John if he would come along and spend the weekend taking the train down to Warrnambool, then stay at a hotel for the night on Saturday.
I had purchased tickets to the Leonard Cohen concert way back in February and Karen & I went to that after work on Friday. What a great concert, I didn't get home until 1.30, and off course took until 2 to get to bed. Than we had to get up at 5.30 to catch the train!

Off we went, with our suitcases in the rain at 6.30am. John kept pretending he was hitch-hiking and giving me the giggles. The trip down was lovely, I slept a little and did some work on the business plan I have to present to the Board.

John didn't bring a jumper as he wants to get a new one and he thought he might be able to get a suitable one in Warrnambool, but of course all the shops in W, only had new summer stock, even though the temperature had plunged to 17 degs. Funny thing about weekends, the newspaper published some statistics today that show it actually dos rain more on Saturdays than on any other day of the week! Well, we ended up in the local Red Cross Op Shop, where John got a fantastic farmers overcoat (dri-aza-bone) style for $20. It looks as though it's never been worn.
