'Our Wooden Toy sign is starting to attract customers. Most callers are travelling and don’t have room for large items. One tourist called in Thursday and wanted to buy a piece of myrtle. It was marked as $3 but he gave $5. I asked him where he was from and he said he was from Geelong / Queenscliff area in Victoria. On the off chance I asked if he knew Jack Beazley. Jack is a great mate and they are in several clubs together. Jack Beazley is the Master Shipwright who built La Chaloupe. I told the gentleman that we are taking La Chaloupe to Franklin on Sunday to race against steam powered boats and to have some fun.'
