 When the two men came up far the train they were much amused and told us that as Paddy had expected, a party of the policeman'​s "​expert bushmen who knew every inch of the country from the railway line to Camden"​ had come searching down the Creek. They were glad to hear "the missing hiker" had been brought in safely, but groaned that now they would have a long, rough trip backup Glenbrook Creek to Springwood. Paddy asked why they did not take the track up to the Highway at Blaxland and hitch a lift home?

-There was the usual sprinkling of gentlemen clad in shorts, neat and cool looking and envied by most of the males who wished they'd done likewise, knobbly knees or not. Across the room was a striking tall redhead with short hair, orange coloured sarong and a Tahitian shirt.
