Day 59 Saturday 24/7/21 Mulambin, warm 27 The caravan park is busy with weekenders. They tend to start drifting in on Thursdays, young families in bunk vans and camper trailers. The kids really give the pool and playground a workout. Woody decides on a swim at Mulambin Beach but the tides here have quite a range and it’s low tide at present. It’s not, but it seems like, he walks half a kilometre to reach the water and then it’s shallow. He looks like a tiny black dot in the distance. I walk the shoreline instead. Returning to the park … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 59 – Did someone pull the plug out?
Day 58 Friday 23/7/21 Mulambin, warm 24 Woody is up early to walk into Yeppoon. A whopping 15kms as the walking path is winding and twice as long as the road. It’s also a lovely day for a gentle stroll … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 58 – Forward March!
Day 57 Thursday 22/7/21 Mulambin, sunny cool 18 A cold early morning of about 5 degrees here. Up on the Darling Downs it was a chilly minus 4, the coldest in 20 years so we can’t complain. With El Prado … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 57 – A lazy chardy
Day 56 Wednesday 21/7/21 Mulambin, sunny 21 again Because of NSW and Victorian border confusion we extend our booking here another 5 days until the 18th of August. We’re lucky to keep our site as the park is busy. We wonder when and how we’ll get home. I zip down to Emu Park for an early morning blood test only to find the pathology lab closed. On such a sunny morning it’s a lovely drive to Cooee Bay where I’m attended to by an Irishman who has been here 4 years and loves jet ski fishing with a passion but … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 56 – Soundlessly pushing buttons
Day 55 Tuesday Mulambin, sunny 21 A quiet morning in the sun and processing a few hundred photos. It’s surprising how they mount up. Woody walks Mulambin Beach to Causeway Lake. I take the car to Lammermoor and walk the … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 55 – Lammermoor
Day 54 Monday Mulambin 19/7/21, sunny 21 We’re up early again, this time to farewell our mates Kath & Kim who are heading west to Emerald today on their way home to Perth via the Barkly Highway into the Northern Territory and on down through the length of WA. We wish them luck but none of us is envious of them as both borders are harsh at present and critical of where folks have been. We have a quiet morning in the sun before our appointment at the medical centre for our second Astra Zeneca jabs. The receptionists are extremely … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 54 – A shot in the arm
Day 53 Sunday 18/7/21 Mulambin, sunny 21 I wish I hadn’t changed the bed to summer bedding, it was freezing last night. We’re up early to visit the Emu Park market but it is a little disappointing this time as … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 53 – Heavens, what made me think of choppers?
Dear readers, due to the vagaries of internet connection and reliable power we’ll be off the radar for a few days while we enjoy red dirt country. See you on the other side. Lindsey, Woody and the pit crew. Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Gone Bush
Day 52 Saturday 17/7/21 Mulambin, sunny 24 My beach shoes are hanging on the guy rope outside and Woody says that it means that we have drugs for sale. We have more drugs on board that’s you can jump over but they’re to keep us alive and stop us from tripping out whenever we stand up. We hear from Double or Nuthin’ and Shirley Temple, they’re making their way north after visiting the family in Brisbane. I explore nearby Kemp Beach and we cook Chicken Saltimbocca in the oven, I’m sure that our oven is starting to get slower. Elle … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 52 – Drugs?
Day 51 Friday 16/7/21 Mulambin, hot 27 A glorious morning. Woody comes back from Baked on 44 in Yeppoon with almond croissants and we have a long leisurely breakfast outside with a cheeky Blue Faced Honeyeater for company. We meet … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 51 – Brekkie with the birds
