March 27th Albury to Temora
We flew on the GPS heading direct to Clin and Barbara Ashton-Martin’s property where after landing Craig, Lara and 20mo (Annabel) Taberner in their Cessna 195 zoomed past at great speed and then landed to join us. What a spectacular property we had been invited to stay at and the host’s home was truly beautiful. It was over 100 years old and Clin and Barb had restored the existing home and added an impressive living “wing” with indoor pool, master bedroom with ensuite, laundry and another bathroom.
We had afternoon tea on the verandah overlooking the airfield on which was parked the C195 and the Stinson. We went down and washed all the bugs and red dirt from the Stinson and were very relieved to find that the oil leak had definitely stopped.
We met their two dogs Pepsi and Jackson and during this time Kevin realized he had mislayed a parcel of money and though we searched through every piece of clothing but could not find it.
