Day 42 Wednesday 7/7/21 Tannum Sands, sunny 23
Setting off in search of a fruit barn (fruit barns are a Qld thing) because fruit and vegetables seem to be expensive in the supermarkets up here, we find ourselves doing a loop out to Benaraby then back into Gladstone. All to no avail but we do find a good butcher at Barney Point.
Elle and El Prado with their West Australian in laws Kath & Kim in tow arrive in the afternoon after having left Melbourne at the end of lockdown. They’re desperate for warmer weather, warm coastal nights and an evening where they can enjoy sitting outdoors. See we weren’t the only ones chasing better weather.
As this park has masses of open space in the unpowered area we are surprised to discover that they can only get a one night stay. Covid rules mean that a head count applies to these premises too even though it is outdoors.
We talk ourselves almost hoarse recounting our adventures of the past few weeks on our treks north.
Dinner is a late bbq and we quickly realise that we have indeed found an excellent butcher.
Sydney has extended its lockdown.
