Default Having a coffee from a seatainer

Yes well as I mentioned some time ago I intended to take up John [The TankMan] Gilbert 's kind invitation for a chat and a coffee whilst I passed through Mildura on my return from Kiama to Albany.John showed me the popup seatainer coffee shop and we had a good chat.

Hi Winchester, Yes, the coffee was great also great to meet the name in person. We had a good chat for about an hour then Winchester was on his way again. Where are you now??
Must be on the Nullabour by now. Have a good trip mate. Cheers John.

Hi Winchester, good to hear all went well with the trip. Am looking forward to Murray Bridge next year. That is a nice collection of Windmills, the view from the top of the tallest one would be something. Are they at Albany? cheers, John

The Cobb & Co Museum in Toowoomba also has a good selection of Southern Cross windmills on display in the park our front.
