(Brexit will not be featured.)
Gerri Lyell – I never meant to do it. Life experienced by a person with absolutely no planning ability whatsoever. In the late 1960’s, I set off with four friends to work my way around Australia, following a circuit of mostly seasonal work which included prawning, fruit-picking and hotel work. We experienced many interesting situations and some unusual characters along the way. I also learned to “go with the flow”. I hope you will be amused and interested in the rest of my story, of how the “flow” finally led to Wynyard.
