Due to it's location, Coral Bay relied on diesel generators for it's electricity, which meant high costs and a reliance on importing fuel into the region. In 2007 these three wind turbines were constructed. They now produce 45% of Coral Bay's electricity requirements which save 440,000 litres of diesel fuel each year. If a cyclone threatens the town, the turbines can be lowered to prevent damage. The power lines to distribute the electricity in town are underground.

Other than that my day has been fairly quiet but was made much better as I spoke to both my kids Shane and Rachel. Even though I am having the trip of a lifetime and enjoying my lifestyle, I still really miss my kids and beautiful grandchildren Clare, O'Shea and Mikayla. I'm sure I mentioned it but my son Shane and his partner Stacey are due to have my fourth grand baby mid December. I can't quite believe in 2 1/2 years I will have gone from no grandchildren to four. How lucky am I?
I'll say it again I LOVE my LIFE.
Note: Don't forget to leave me a comment to go into the draw for one of my pieces of jewellery.
