Friday 29th May
Well the canvas is dry so we are really packing up and hitting the road to Bicheno. Came for 2 nights and Stayed for 5, thanks very much to the Hillcrest van park. Giving them a plug as they were very good to us, Thanks to Chris very much. Had a good run down stopped at a few places and got to Seaview Caravan Park, Decided to set up as the weather was not sounding good, gale force winds, snow down low and cold. We will tiki tour tomorrow.
If you want a van park to stay in St Helens here it is. Camp Kitchen, TV, games for kids, etc. Falmouth where the river runs into the sea. Had to take this, it is grass on top of this house’s roof, still being built so couldn’t get to the front to see the architecture. Fishermans Jetty at Bicheno, fresh fish and chips and scollops. Beautiful, sat on the rocks and ate them, but first had to wrap our tea in a blanket to keep it warm as wanted to get the colours in the sunset. Another shot from where we did eat our tea.
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.
This is where we stayed, they have a caravan park up the other end of the farm, we wanted the paddock. At the caravan park Graham has mattress that go on the star beds, great for star gazing. They use this in the camp kitchen up at the van park. Entrance into airport and Observatory, Cosmos Center and information Center all in one. Cosmos Center Star trails from the paddock where we are staying.
Friday 9th November
We left home at 3.30 pm to go up and stay in the Noosa Caravan Park, got there by 5.15 pm. Got settled into the cabin and had tea, weather was not looking good at this stage for our Fraser trip on Sunday, never mind. Got to bed early.
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 on the Sunshine Coast, beautiful storm coming in.
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.
