We awoke to a very grey, overcast morning and a big hole in the car park behind us! It would appear that after the heavy rain of the day before, the water pressure in the drain had caused it to rupture and create a big hole. We never heard a thing. It could have been quite a different story though, as Neil nearly parked in that particular corner!

We were down at Discount Auto Parts for just after 8.00. Once Neil had got changed and got all the tools he needed, he went to work out in the back lot and Mel took herself a few miles up the road to the local library to use the internet. After several hours she returned to find Neil still dismantling away! During the morning there had been a fair amount of rain, but now the sun was out and it was hot again.

We left around 3 pm armed with just about everything we had come back for and made our way to the first hamburger joint we came to, which happened to be a "Wendy's". Not bad, but we won't be rushing back for another one.

We arrived back at Santa Rosa Lake State Park around 7pm. After dinner and showers we settled in to watch the final episode of "24". Oh no!
