It’s Woody’s 75th birthday and it’s raining but he comes back from his morning walk with an armload of passion fruit. El Prado had spotted a laden vine that hangs over a nearby footpath dropping fruit for all.
We meet in Yeppoon for a birthday lunch at the Railway Hotel where the patrons are colourful and the food ordinary except, the birthday boy scores a Chilli Garlic Prawn and Moreton Bay Bug Spaghetti that is excellent.
A drive around the Rosslyn Bay marina without even getting out of the car just about does us in. But we do find block ice, and a find it is as it is hard to get these days and will keep for a week in our Techni Ice fridge. There’s no better way to chill a beer.
Tonight, we try Thai Sweet Chilli Chicken Wings in the air fryer and they are crunchy and scrumptious and finger licking, chin drippingly good. This thing is priceless.
On the Covid front, we ring the clinic to book our shots and are told we can ring back tomorrow to secure a spot. The Sydney lockdown has been extended for two more weeks. Cases have broken out in Melbourne having been transmitted by removalists from Sydney. Masks will be mandatory again at midnight.
