Capricorn Dancers, Day 40 – Perfect the next

Day 40 Monday 5/7/21 Tannum Sands, sunny 24

We drive into Gladstone for a rather special lunch at Classic Thai in the Rydges hotel precinct. The lunch is delicious and complimented by a rather nice Sauvignon Blanc.

We admire the grand buildings of Goondoon St, discover a seafood market down on the river and admire the view from Auckland Hill. Why the name? Early settlers arrived on a ship named The Lord of Auckland. This is an interesting town.

Back in Tannum Sands while I take a walk on the beach Woody sneaks out to buy dessert. It’s a warm night and we eat our prawns, oysters and tiramisu outside with a Morris Sparkling Shiraz. Bats are squabbling in the trees. It’s a perfect day indeed.

On the Covid front, friends ring from Katherine, NT. They’re stuck waiting for the WA border to open and were due in Broome 4 days ago. Case numbers in Sydney are still high.

Accom: 21.00

Towing Kms: 0

  1. We’ve got friends locked down in Darwin. They’re waiting it out with plenty if booze and food in good hotel. So they’re happy. Sounds like you finally had a good, sunny day.
