... call. He gets a very nice fellow who says he will contact Swift and get back to us. We head for Proserpine to have a look at this very old town, the place where Bob’s dad was born. There are some lovely old buildings and we note the local sugar mill is up and running, no tours however. It is the story of many a country town with lots of empty shops and not many people about. We do the town walk then head for the local park for lunch at ...

... to Eli creek to wash off and this time it was very cold!! I went all in to get rid of the salt water off and so did about 5 other people, considering there's 32 of us all together, that was a poor turn out! We then let the crazy weird German drive back to camp, what a big mistake! He's a crazy driver, I thought we was going to die! We didn't die but I did end up with a bruise on my hip from he's reckless driving! Back at camp we made steak and mash for dinner, I was ...
