Lucy’s birthday – Happy Birthday. Have a lovely time in Prague
Spent the night at Cammoweal – hasn’t changed much since we were here 8 years ago. Off to Winton.
Keep forgetting to mention – people seem to have a new hobby – dressing up termite mounds !!!!!! Will try and remember to take some photos.
Spotted one first echidna of the trip !!!!! Disappeared too fast to get a photo
Just got to the caravan park in time – just before all the vehicles – covered in red mud started arriving from Birdsville races. Apparently there was no room in Bouila and the floods were coming again! The pub, where we ate was sooooooo busy.
Off to Emerald. Stopped in Barcaldine to swap driving. Below is a photo of the Tree of Knowledge – someone poisoned it and they built this structure round it. The other photo of man & dog was being erected – no info on it but it’s all made of “found” objects.
Just when we thought we had overcome most challenges the tyre monitor starts beeping. Seems we have a slow puncture on the car!!!!
Game of golf in Emerald. A lovely course.
Go to sort the car tyre out – not a slow puncture – the wheel rim inside has cracked !!!!!! Watch out Mitsubishi we’ll be calling in !!!!!!!!!!
Set off for Yeppoon and a week of golf. Hang on not so fast – the caravan has other ideas!!!!!! We know the pads in the Alko tow hitch need replacing and have organised it for next week – didn’t expect them to go completely – well one of them. Limp into Discovery Park in Rockhampton – at the same time the heavens open. Seems the best laid plans may not happen.
More news next time.
