I'd driven on the route several times but man years ago and there are many changes including a big wind farm has been created along the way. I had wanted to go to Nelson after Portland, but the road was closed.
I arrived in the Mount and called my friend. She was not there, but called back later and we had dinner together.
The following morning I went up to where the old hospitals once were. There's nothing there but a park.
|The "old" Nurses Home.|
|Where the old hospital used to be.|
It was quite moving to see the spot where the hospital, which had been so much a part of my life for five years way back in the 1960's, used to be.
The Nurses Home is now a residential - apparently great comfortable places, but of course I have not seen inside. I headed for Adelaide after my short tour of the city.
