J’s putting the finishing touches to his solar electrification. He still needs a hot water tank, so we abort the Saturday beach and head off to … RED ALERT: product placement! … Bunnings monster store. I’ve already decided to pay it a visit with the camera: it struck me on my last brief visit as having some of the attributes of an art gallery. While J heads off purposefully to Plumbing, I prowl the aisles, attracting the odd strange look as I point and shoot. J’s a bit concerned they might think I’m an industrial spy, so he keeps well clear.
