The excursion

on November 8, 2012

This morning, the nursing lodge bus came out at 10am with ‘the men’s group’. It was a great success!

Staff, residents and volunteers

Morning tea

Godfrey’s gang did their contortionist act but were outshone by an impromptu perfomance by the turkeys

Anthony and me

    Looks like everyone had a great time. The sun was shining and it looks like it was quite warm. The men will have enjoyed their trip today. Everything is so much better when the sun is shining.

    (It has been bucketing with rain all day here, but your happy pictures have lifted my spirits. Hope all the men enjoyed their visit today.
