Day 61 – 15/7/2019 on this Midlife Adventure
It was way too cold this morning! So I stayed in bed until it warmed up enough to consider getting out of bed. Oh if I had been working then I wouldn’t have that choice… its pretty nice.
Today’s journey was back into Bundaberg and the Botanic Gardens the home of the Hinkler Hall of Aviation.
At 19 he built his first glider which in an era when flight was still in its infancy that was a massive feat.
From there his engineering mind developed additional planes and led to a life dedicated to Aeronautics.
The gallery below give you an insight into some of the exhibits which is very interactive including 3 flight simulators.
In 1983 the house Bert was living in, in the UK was to be demolished, a dedicated team here in Bundaberg worked hard and brought it back to Australia and rebuilt it brick by brick.
This now is part of the Bundaberg Botanic Gardens a well presented and laid out park that I have included some shots of in the above gallery.
So I’m flying through this Midlife Adventure and on the move again further north tomorrow.
