17th & 18th July


Travelling from Cairns to Cardwell today. Haven’t mentioned it before but we have had a creaking & cronking around our towbar. Before we left we got the car investigated and corrected and the caravan checked over. The only thing anyone came up with was the tow ball was a bit worn & scratched. We ordered a new one and had it fitted in Atherton. But nothing has solved the noise. Thought we would get the Alko hitch checked. Went to an Alko fitter and they had no idea – great help these beep experts are. Meanwhile we had a few caravan bits like new steps & tow hitch scales we needed. We found Cairns Caravan Accessories – great service exceptionally good prices.

Stopped at Muderous Point winery for a tasting – well a buying – all different fruit wines, ports and cream liqueurs. Needless to say we didn’t come out empty handed.!!!

Arrived at Kookaburra Caravan Park Cardwell. It was a case of 3rd site lucky – the first site was about big enough for a toy caravan !!! The second site seemed fine till we got out and used our noses – effluent was on the air. The third site is lovely – though when we arrived our neighbour informed us there had been an Eastern Brown snake on the cement pad about a couple of days ago!!!

18th July

Royal Cardwell golf club – forgot to take some pics will try and remember tomorrow as it is a picturesque little nine hole course. Ollie & I both got sub 100 rounds. Played with Rhonda & Janette. The comp is a 2 day competition so results tomorrow.

19th July

Well yesterday we were last out and Ollie had to play with 3 of us ladies!!! Today we were first out and I had to play with men!! Still forgot to take some photos. Third time lucky I will try on Sat. Had a lovely day with Warren & Brian. Unfortunately on the 13th hole I managed to injure my left forefinger when I caught the ground awkwardly. I then nearly killed Warren with my next shot as my club flew out of my hand with a shooting pain up the finger!!! Everyone gave me a wide berth after that!!!!!!! Ollie managed 2 rounds under 100 but unfortunately no prizes. Somehow I managed the net winner for C grade on 18th and I got the overall nett ladies runner up prize for the 2 days. What a lovely surprise.
