Some places we've been and some places we're going.

After the problems we had last time we packed up the camper when it was covered in dew we filled in some time before leaving this morning. We checked out the kangaroos on the beach and had a hot drink when the Office opened.

There was no great excitement today, we drove through acres of sugarcane fields, tomatoes and capsicums. There were the usual big models today they were mango, watermelon and pumpkin. Each town had plenty of backpacker accommodation and some advertised that they found jobs too. The area relies on backpackers and grey nomads to bring in the harvest. In Bowen we looked for the amazing shop we visited last time but we think it has now been divided into two, one with mens’ clothes and the other womens’. Each one was chock a block with stock but we weren’t tempted to make any purchases. The town now has lots of murals depicting its past.

Because we’d heard of people not being able to get a place in a park we decided to book a place for the night but the first two places Alex tried had no vacancies. The third one sounded great, “The Bush Oasis” and advertised an animal sanctuary. The reality is a bit different, I feel our last campsite was a bush oasis but this one is beside the Bruce Highway! We haven’t had any visiting Brush Turkeys, Kangaroos or Kookaburras, maybe tomorrow morning we’ll get a nice surprise.

The car is getting the bolt tension check tomorrow morning – the guy was booked out until he heard who had sent us there. We’re staying here for at least 2 nights, probably three. Magnetic Island has lots to offer so we’re hoping to go there on Wednesday.

  1. I love that huge dog!

    • He wasn’t very happy that we walked past his yard.

      • Ek is bly jy het dit geskryf.Te lank het die samelewing druk uitgeoefen oor hoe en wat mense moet wees.Ek het in ‘n tyd grootgeword waar daar omtrent net vier beroepe was waaruit vroue kon kies..hoe sleg was dit?Ek is nou nog woedend daaroor!
