Capricorn Dancers, Day 91 – Where bananas don’t grow

Day 91 Wednesday 25/8/21 Mulambin to Moura, blue skies It’s sad to be leaving after so long as we’d gotten into an easy rhythm, every day being warm and just pulling on another pair of shorts and a T shirt. We’ve certainly found the warm weather that we’d been chasing. In Rockhampton we stop off at Doblo’s fruit barn to stock up on fruit and vegies and of course we are obliged to have a quick run around Aldi and Dan Murphy’s for grey nomad essentials, bargains and booze. We meet the Prado’s out at the Gracemere turn off and … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 91 – Where bananas don’t grow

Capricorn Dancers, Day 90 – Saying goodbye

Day 90 Tuesday 24/8/21 Mulambin, humid 25 It’s a funny old day, we have cloud cover, heat then more cloud. Woody slowly does the pack up jobs. Things like putting the fridge back in the car, cleaning and pulling in the awning. Slowly our little home starts to take on a temporary look.

Capricorn Dancers, Days 87 & 88 – Moon rise over Mulambin

Day 87 Saturday 21/8/21 Mulambin, Sunny 23 Shit! I suddenly realise that I’ve forgotten to colour my newly cut hacked hair. Waving bleach, colour and cling wrap around while chatting with M about the wonders of Dyson Stick Vacuums and how much I’m missing mine, I get the colour totally wrong. I end up looking like mutton dressed up as lamb. At least it’s a good chance to clean the van’s pipes and shower with the excess hair bleach though. With hair a ridiculous shade of brown we head into town, Yeppoon, for a farewell lunch at Waterfront Bar & … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Days 87 & 88 – Moon rise over Mulambin

Capricorn Dancers, Day 86 – Caravan Incontinence

Day 86 Friday 20/8/21 Mulambin, sunny 23 We receive an early morning visit from C & W bearing frozen mango from their own orchard. What a treat at this time of year. We sit down with the Prado’s and a large map and work out our path home. Things are getting serious now and we are talking more and more of life outside of this paradise. Our ants have discovered the tidy bin, which lives in the bathroom, and have now taken up residence there. This is a big improvement over their last home, the kitchen bench. I’m thinking that … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 86 – Caravan Incontinence
