Day 25

Well last night was great but Dee and I agree that one such night is great but we couldn't take more than the one! Must be getting old.

I think my friend Jenny would like that view.

Today has been very busy. I made Yemmy ready for the road and took off for Mackay with a large list of things to do. I started with the dump point at the Information Centre and got rid of two bags of rubbish there as well. 

On the way there I stopped and took a pic of the great view of our area from the top of a hill.

I went from the Info Centre to BCF and filled a gas bottle - first time on this trip - and then gave Yemmy a good dose of diesel. On to a Pharmacy and arrived at Tony and Denyse's home with one minute in hand for their early lunch as Tony was playing bowls after lunch. After lunch Denyse printed out some forms for me to send to Centrelink about my income stream. All because my super has risen by $2 a week! 

Then it was down to North Mackay to have a haircut and beard trim - I visit the same barber every year. From there I went to the Mackay Airport to see if I could find out more about the helicopter lesson but I couldn't find anything likely so I headed for the harbour with the intention of buying some bug tails and prawns for tea. Murphy had been keeping his head down but he made sure I got into the lanes going over the river with no chance of backtracking! No seafood treat for dinner tonight!

I'd written a shopping list but of course left it with Yemmy when I went to Coles. I think I got everything I needed.

Dee couldn't extend her stay on the site next to me so had to move to Site 5 and I joined her there for our happy hour. Tomorrow night we are going to the Bowls Club Bistro. They are in the middle of renovations and extensions so we are hoping it's still open. I'll ring in the morning to make sure.

  1. Hi! Lionel, All seems to be going well, I can't believe it is 3 weeks ago you were stuck in a Mercedes dealers yard. A lot of water under the bridge since then. Safe Travel Barry
