Flying into Bulolo was fantastic. We flew through a long, densely forested valley before making our turn towards the airstrip. We were greeted on arrival and made our way to Tony's home. The colonial style home with beautifully manicured lawns sits atop the highest hill in the township.

|Explaining the plywood process. I had no idea how plywood was made and now have a great deal of respect for the process.|
|Each sheet is carefully checked for knots and faults and filled with putty|
|Lining up the log as it comes into the mill. The laser cross has to be perfectly centrally aligned at both ends. Can you see the mirror at the other end of the log?|

We then drove a short distance out of Bullolo to check out the cattle that are feed to the residents of the community. Of course, as cattle growers, we were very interested in this. We were also taken for a drive around the 9 hole golf course. It is a credit to the groundsmen who keep this course in tip top condition.
We arrived home to have a shower and a short rest before drinks at the Bulolo Golf Course Clubhouse. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the back deck, sipping rum and coke, and looking out over the lush golf course. My son and daughter in law would have loved this place!
