Tuesday 2nd July, Ross

We said our cheerios to the house owners after a cuppa and chat, leave them to settle in again. Had a nice run down to Ross calling into a few places along the way. The Caravan Park in  Ross is nice, basic and they have a herb garden that you can share, Rhubarb, Lavender, Comfrey, pull a weed or two as well. Lots of room for big vans. Very Clean amenities.The air is cold and dark clouds around.

 Ross Bridge was completed in 1836 and is the third oldest bridge in Australia and a finest sand stone one at that.  Plenty of room in the caravan park  Late evening as the sun was low in the sky

Wednesday 22nd February Heading to George Town

Well we got away by 9 am, and its 21 deg, lovely. Had a great drive through and decided not to call into Bridport as we’d done it last time. Got to George Town and went to information centre as we do when its a new area for us. George Town and Low Head are on the east side of the Tamar near the mouth of the river. With info in hand, had a look around and ended up booking into the East beach Tourist Park, we dont do van parks but I have to say this is nice and clean, basic and lovely couple own it. Good price for power as well. We are staying two nights.

 Our camp site, plenty of room.   Low Head light house.  Beach just out from Van park.  Incredible art works.  I wanted to add these plaques so get the information correct. Van Park.

Day 67

Friday 17th

Graham, the owner of the Bush Camp at Charlieville does bus trips around the town and shows where the floods came to, what they are doing about it, all the points of interest in Charlieville and much more, so yes we did the trip. Very interesting indeed. Got back to our camp 2 1/2 hours later and had lunch, then went up to the Cosmos Center. Spent hours in there, so much to see. Booked into the Observatory for tomorrow night. Had tea out at the RSL with some friends of mine, very flash place. Came back and did star trails.

Saturday 10th November

Woke up to hearing rain and it’s been raining most of the night. Got breakfast sorted, packed food for our lunch and got our camera gear ready with plastic bags to keep them dry as we are heading for Arkwright Point to get some photo’s. Well that’s the plan. Nice surprise, get to Arkwright and the rain stopped, we had a cuppa then headed down the beach, skies are dark, ocean rough, beautiful.

Arkwright Point in storm Arkwright on the Sunshine Coast, beautiful storm coming in.

Arkwright in storm No this wave did not get me, but was close. We packed up as the storm was getting to close so by the time we got back up to the car park, had our lunch and down the rain came. It looked like it was setting in so we headed back to the caravan park. Settled in for a restful afternoon. Early to bed as we are having to have a early start tomorrow.
