Thursday 16th February. Heading to North East Coast

Once we’d had breakfast and did all our bits in at St Helen’s for the next trip, heading up to Gladstone for Policeman’s Point up in the Mount William N.P. There is not a lot of camping up this way but enough for what we want to do. Not sure about the weather but cant sit around waiting, just gotta go. 🙂 Here’s the last of shots from here.

 Underwater at Dora Point,   Floating grass.  Camp site at Dora Point this time.

Day 26-29

Saturday 6th-Tuesday 9th

Very hot day today, Had a quiet day, recharging everything while generator is on. No star trails as its turned cloudy. We saw the Satellite ( sky Lab ) go over again, we have been watching it for nights now. We are heading to Townsville and will be catching up with family on Dons side so no more photos for the web site until the 9th. Here are a few images of the Super moon in Townsville. This is the Jetty in foreground, and the shipping harbour and lights of the wharf in background.

IMG_3618  Final image of the super moon, not as big as I’d thought it would be, still a lot of fun, very windy and cold. 9.30 pmIMG_3596  The only cloud in the sky and of course it had to be in line with the moon, gave it some character. IMG_3588  First glimpse of the super moon. Heaps of people doing the same as us.IMG_3580  This image is looking over at Magnetic Island just before dark.IMG_3576

First image when we got down to the shore line for the super moon.

Today my eldest son returned from a trip in NZ and it’s at his place we have been staying. Very dry out here in Murrurundi and keeping the gardens watered is a big job. Once Garry was settled after his flight, next day he drove us up to some real nice spots as well, we are very lucky. Here are some images of the rock formations up in behind the town, real amazing shapes and they are so huge.
