Capricorn Dancers, Day 89 – A Peaceful Haven

Day 89 Monday 23/8/21 Mulambin, sunny with cloud 23

Double or Nuthin’ and Shirley Temple leave to visit the family in Brisbane. As things currently stand that means that they’ll be entering what Victoria deems as an Orange Zone and will be required to then spend 14 days in a Green Zone before attempting the trip through NSW and home.

Like good grey nomads we visit the chemist in Emu Park to get our prescriptions filled and ensure that we have enough medicine for the trip home then take a drive out to Keppel Sands to see what’s there. And do you know what? There’s not much. A quirky but neat little fisherman’s haven probably best describes it. There’s an unusual pub that is mostly outdoors, a co-op shop, convenience store, post office and a neat little caravan park. Sea front homes are on large blocks and only a narrow one-way street separates them from the beach. There are lovely views out to the Keppel islands and those large blocks are big enough to house a boat and a few visiting relatives in caravans. Yep, I reckon this is one of those little spots where they roll up the footpaths at night and peace and tranquility descends with a cold beer on the veranda.

Accom: 42.00

Fan Hill, which bears nothing to today’s story, but I do find it an intriguing outcrop
