An inflated foot and an inflated bill

Today we drove to Moruya to have my swollen foot "ultra-sounded". It took them little more than five minutes to tell me that they couldn't find anything and then another fifteen minutes to charge several hundred dollars to my MEDICARE card and a further $217.75 to my personal credit card.

We continued our drive to Tuross Head where we had fish'n'chips at O'Brien's Boatshed before taking a look at a small house for sale nearby. It sits on a tiny 594m² block of land and they want over $300,000 for it. Not cheap!
