We struggled on through our massive list and managed one of the largest supermarket expeditions we have yet undertaken. Yet somehow we managed to fit all the groceries in to some place in the van. It was just wonderful to have so much fresh fruit and vegetables to choose from. (We have since emabrked on 'a week of delicious dinners', and a lot of the produce is gone.)
First stop was a lovely picnic lunch at East Point Reserve, followed by an afternoon wandering around the Defense of Darwin Museum. It was a reall eye opener to see how similar the attack was to Pearl Harbour, and then see how differently the two nations handled it. I think I will be reading the book An Awkward Truth.
Grandad was in his element of course, and a few stories of his time "on the boats" and in Australia after the war were had.
