Day 25 Sunday 20/6/21 Kenilworth, sunny 22 We’ve been intrigued by the Kenilworth Bakery. It has two shops side by side one selling savoury the other sweet. The sweet one advertises donuts and each morning a queue stretches along the … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 25 – Kenilworth Bakery Donuts
Day 24 Saturday 19/6/21 Kenilworth, sunny with a cool breeze We expect the park to get busier today but no. It’s about one third full though the town is jumping. It’s a hilly town and walking the backstreets is a good workout for the legs but we probably undo it by buying another tub of chocolate mousse and a punnet of strawberries. Concerned about the upcoming school holidays we make bookings and plan the next few weeks in the lead up to our Capricorn Coast Mulambin stay. This is a constant worry as we always need a Plan B in … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 24 – Chihuahua!
Day 23 Friday 18/6/21 Kenilworth, sunny 21 A chilly clear morning. Woody does the washing across the road at the community run Socks and Jocks Laundry. We take a drive to Maleny, 40kms to the south along the Blackall Range. It’s a picturesque drive through farmlands, dairy pastures and rainforests with views from the crests over the ranges. After walking the town we have a leisurely coffee and watch the local activity. It’s an upmarket as well as alternate town and there is a broad mix of population of all ages. Though when shopping in the IGA grocery I notice … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 23 – Forgetful?
Day 22 Thursday 17/6/21 Somerset to Kenilworth, warm There isn’t any fog this morning and we’re woken by the warmth. At last! I guess you’ve realised by now that we’re desperate for warm weather. To avoid hills we take a … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 22 – Kenilworth Showgrounds
Day 21 Wednesday 16/6/21 Somerset Dam, fog then sunny 20 Another foggy morning. The neighbours leave early making us wonder if we only imagined their presence last night. They didn’t even get to see the place in daylight. Were we … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 21 – Too good Toogoolawah
Day 20 Tuesday 15/6/21 Somerset Dam, fog, thunderstorms 8-19 We wake to another misty morning. I’m just thinking of putting a bit of washing out later when a quick glance at the weather radar shows heavy rain approaching soon, really … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 20 – Somerset Dam Village
Day 19 Monday 14/6/21 Somerset Dam, fog sunny 5 – something nice This is one of those rare places where we can lie in bed with the blind open (there’s only one other van in this section of the park) … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 19 – Esk
Day 18 Sunday Palm Beach to Somerset Dam, sunny 21 There’s frost on the car this morning. Being Sunday, the motorway is not backed up which is a blessing but today we’re going to bypass Brisbane going via the west. … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 18 – A piece of paradise
Day 17 Saturday 12/6/21 Palm Beach (The Kardashian Coast) Sunny Walks on the creek are lovely and it’s hard to believe that it’s winter. The sky is so bright. The pathway is busy with posers, joggers and everyone making the most of what is a long weekend. It’s still a shock for us that social distancing doesn’t seem to exist.here. We take a walk around Burleigh Heads. It’s super busy and we watch the surfers and the passing parade before meeting Woody the Elder and The Very Good Golfer at the Burleigh Heads Surf Club for lunch. We have a … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 17 – This is winter
Day 16 Friday 11/6/21 Casino to Palm Beach, warm sunny The uncertainty is getting to us. Do we risk 4 days in Murwillumbah Showgrounds at $25 per night and cross the border daily with no guarantee that we can continue into Qld when we are ready to move on or do we go into Qld and stay at Tallebudgera Creek for $65 per night? We set off for Murwillumbah then change our minds and head for a border crossing. As we cruise up the Pacific Highway the car balks at the gentle hills and starts over revving. We had never … Continue reading Capricorn Dancers, Day 16 – Border, what border?
