We arrived at our host families so we can relax and change before going to a Rotary dinner. Our host is a dairy distributor, delivering diary product to small retailors It was a special dinner with the Chief Police Commissioner from Melbourne as the guest speaker. He was excellent, talking about the future of policing and changes in the way we think of policing. We had an excellent meal.

Friday morning – We all met at the Rotary Park in the middle of town. They have a tree planted for every exchange student they have hosted or sent out. After that we went to see their recreational center. What a wonderful facility. We hiked part of the Kaluna bushwalk with one of the urban land care volunteers. He was so knowledgeable!

For lunch we had a great picnic in a park, after which we visited the cathedral, convention center and walked around the downtown area. We returned to our host by midafternoon for time to relax. Cal & I stopped by friends of our hosts who are artist. She works with fabrics while he works with water color. They do unbelievable creative work. Simply unique and beautiful!
Our dear team member who was in the hospital in Melbourne has now returned to the hospital this afternoon, as he was not feeling comfortable. Also this afternoon his wife said she was not feeling herself, so they are both in the hospital overnight! Tomorrow is his birthday!! The hospital CEO is the Rotary President. They are in good hands. Hopefully by tomorrow they will be back with us again.
This evening our host couple had a delightful dinner meal for the whole team and their hosts at the home of our hosts. We had a wonderful visit with everyone.
