Day 43 Thursday 8/7/21 Tannum Sands, sunny 23
Enjoying a coffee from the local cafe, we wave the others off as they go in search of somewhere to stay. With so many families on the road for the school holidays in their new Covid acquired rigs one can no longer roam about the countryside without pre booking.
We have a quiet day in the sun then feed the turkeys at sundown. Woody is worried about our batteries as we have a few more cloudy days coming up.
We’ve noticed this trip that there are recycling bins for 10 cent return items, with the proceeds going to a local charity or men’s shed. The problem is that not all recyclable items have the 10 cent refund. Which means that half the bottles that could be recycled end up in the rubbish. So far two parks we’ve stayed in have locks on the recycling bin, it seems that collecting 10 cent recyclables is a sub industry.

Yes, money to be made everywhere.

It’s a bit unfair to us regular caravanners that the newbies have muscled in us, causing our old carefree lives to become regulated. Having to book takes the spontaneity out of it don’t you think. Still, it’s good that people are finally getting to see their own country I guess.
I’m thrilled that people are seeing what Australia has to offer, but I’m sort of missing the cheery European kids in the camp kitchens of an evening.
