Point Cook

Point Cook, Australia

Got the tyre repaired/replaced cost $200 (ouch).

Went to Point Cook to look at a new development on the east side of the city, we came across Sanctuary Lakes (see www.sanctuarylakes.com.au) the Australian version of Cambourne! Although this one had the added features of a completed gym and swimming pool, golf club with Greg Norman golf course, bistro, cafe,and nearby shops - all 20 minutes from the city of Melbourne. Another plus is the views from the houses, either a lake view or out to Point Philip Bay. Not sure whether it measures up to Cambourne standards????? Sally really liked it there and wants to live there!!

Finished the day by going to the Skywalk, tallest building in the southern hemisphere. The lift did 88 floors in 38 seconds and travelled at 9m/s and made our ears pop. Shaun and the kids went on the edge experience, where they put you in a glass box and push you out over the edge.Luckily you don't actually fall but there are sound effects that sound like cracking glass!

Hello Everybody, Sounds like you are having a busy time. What have you been up to having to have tyres replaced. Dad likes the sound of the golf course so you have permission to live there or anywhere close to a course. Why didn't Mum go in the glass cage? I always thought that she was very brave! Looked like Sally and Chris were having a great time on the beach.

ps;- Hope the golf course hasn't got too many lakes as I'm running out of balls.
