The midges are winning. I’ve tried Bushmans, The Locals, long clothes and Elle’s pungent mixture of baby oil and Dettol. Elle’s mixture is the only one that does a half decent job of warding off the damned midges. The good news is we’ve now learnt that they don’t pee under your skin, which is the common misconception, they spit under your skin! Just before they suck your blood out. Whoopee.
The mating habits of crabs and the lack of caravanners this year have us wondering. But the big issue is the tides. Every day at low tide Mick the manager shovels sand around the palm trees with a front-end loader, at high tide it all gets washed away again. The park is diminishing before our eyes. Did someone say Happy Hour?
