Airlie Beach

This is a composite of the scenic road trip ... a lot of long, long open stretches of highway ... a lot of sugar cane ... and not much else. There were some cute, quaint country towns along the way ... but towing LardArse behind you inhibits the photographic opportunities!!!

The There & Back Again Tour to FNQ

We arrived here on Thursday after a drive of around 400km. The caravan park is on the outskirts of Airlie Beach on the way to Shute Harbour. As it is a holiday weekend for the Queen’s Birthday we decided to have a break from the travelling and catch up on a few maintenance things.
We have already had 2 trips to Bunnings.
I’ve done 2 loads of washing.
I’ve been to the supermarket twice.
And we have only been here two days.
No problem ... there isn’t much else to do as it is quite cold and it is raining. Ahhhhh! Cabin Fever ... who said it couldn’t get much better.
But is has been a chance to do some maintenance on this website and get it reposted.
And it has been a chance to do some reading ... finished off “The Last Werewolf” (I liked it Michael. I obviously have lower taste than Alphie!)
At least on the afternoon we arrived the sun was shining so we had a teasing taste of the stunning seascape of the Whitsunday Islands. Fingers crossed for more sunshine before we move on.
So that’s this blog up to date.
