Day 87 Saturday 5/9/20 Darlington Beach, thunderstorms
VeeWee is slowly heading south. Double or Nuthin’ and Shirley Temple have found another paradise on a farm stay near Ingham and R&T are still fattening up that turkey in Hervey Bay.
We wait in anticipation of what we’ll be going home to – the Victorian Premier will be announcing his plans tomorrow – either an extension of Stage 4 or an easing.
We have another delightful morning. Do these locals know how good their climate is?
As I write this a kangaroo sprawls on the lawn just a few metres away. I’m sweating from an early paddle on the beach in impossibly bright sunshine. It’s 10 degrees colder at home.
Late in the afternoon a storm moves in with slashes of lightning. It rains for most of the night.
