Slept for a few hours on the bus, so the 7 hour journey wasn't that long.
My neck did appreciate the sleeping position though.
Got to Mackay at 4:30am. Was pitch black. The driver was telling us about the lorikeets while he was waiting for people.
Bus left at 5am and we waited for a bit to see the sun come up.
Once we'd seen that we went into the petrol station's restaurant and had a toastie each and some chips. Dragged that out for a while and then walked ...
... bird hides but as there was no water in the ponds there wasn't much to look at. On the way back we scared a Lace Monitor up a tree and he sat there and watched us as we walked past.
Next we went for a walk at Sandfly Creek. This walk follows the creek up to where it joins the harbour. Michelle was happy as soon as we arrived a there was a Brahminy Kite sitting on the Wharf next ...
... the jeep. Those in the back however were lucky they didn't suffer whiplash. Funny that was never mentioned in the two hour safety briefing! Lake McKenzie is fresh water lake of what is the clearest water I've ever seen it was absolutely beautiful. It was a bizarre experience to be able to swim underwater with your eyes open without coming up with them stinging from salt or chlorine. I tried to take some pictures with the GoPro to show how clear it was but they don't do it ...
... was pizza night at the park so we joined in it was $7.00 a couple for a pizza dinner . We had such a wonderful night and met the most wonderful people who have travelled heaps and we learnt a lot. Setting off early tomorrow for Mackay, hopefully a quick fix for the car , then head for Airlie Beach for a few days ...
... we naar het country festival gegaan ook al had ik een erg opgezwollen gezicht. Hongerig keek ik hoe Shirley een lekkere maaltijd bestelde, terwijl op het podium zich een slechte versie van Simon Cowell's X-factor afspeelde. Gelukkig zat ik aan de pijn stillers om dit aan te zien. Nu terug op de camping plaats voel ik me ok. Genoeg drama voor vandaag.
Lot's of love/Groetjes,
Mark and Shirley.
