aviation museum that has a fine collection of aircraft, some of them restored after crashes in the forest. The Vickers Viscount was not one of these, but was Chris' favourite because it was the first 'plane he ever flew in, as a schoolboy on his way to the (then) British airbase at El Adam, Tobruk, in Libya, where his father worked for a while the 1960s. The museum had done an impressive restoration of the interior of this aeroplane.
John, Jill and Chris have gone off to the gym now. This evening we're driving up a local hill to visit Greta and Gareth who recently moved to Victoria from Ottawa and would like to show us their new house on Rainbow Ridge Lane.
