|The usual roadworks of course!|
I woke early today and knowing my friends have lunch at 12 noon before Tony leaves for bowls, I got
on the road early and despite the usual roadworks I arrived at 11.45. It was great meeting up with them again. Tony had an accident while trimming a tree - he fell from a stepladder and landed on the blade of the bushman's saw! It made a mess of his leg and has stopped them going on their planned trip for a while. Like me, Tony writes for Caravan World and had some articles to write on their trip but unfortunately these have been delayed.
It's not all bad - the delay means I may catch up with them again when I go to Mackay shopping next week.
|Today's journey wasn't huge but it took from 7.30 until 11.45 to Mackay and then another 40km after lunch to Smalleys|
I diverted for a quick look at Seaforth to see how many people are camped there on the foreshore and it looked about 85% full. The tide was right out so it didn't look its best - particularly with the grey skies we had today.
Just a few minutes from Seaforth and I was at old favorite Smalleys Beach in the Cape Hillsborough National Park. It didn't take long and Yemmy was in position on Site 2 - another favorite!
Unpacking the scooter and getting properly set up can wait until tomorrow. I found I had some phone connection although a bit patchy. That's par for the course here so I rang Jackie using Skype - lovely clear call and she said it was if I was there standing next to her.
The weather forecast isn't good for tomorrow but then it looks like sunny all next week - great for my solar panels. I put my loose ones down on the beach and they get the sun all day.
