Tuesday 21st sep

Trip inland today, after a short deviation to Etty beach for a spot of lunch on the beach.

Weather not great again today, and all the people we speak to say it really shouldn't be like this this time of year. One person in front of us as we were checking in to the camp site said that there was 12" of rain in a day where they were and they were cut off because of flooded roads. Well we haven’t had it that bad, although at one point today i did feel that we were driving up a river.

Still we got to our camp and the drive was very nice apart from the rain and the clouds, and we did see a Cassowary just outside Etty beach which was good.

I think we are getting a bit fed up with camper vans now we have done 33 nights straight in camper vans now and we need the comfort of a proper bed and a bit of room where we can walk about while standing up straight. Shouldn’t complain though we wouldn’t have seen half of the country if we were in a car and staying in towns, and because we have been cooking in the van most nights it has worked out a lot cheaper than eating in restaurants.

Hoping for a dry day tomorrow and we are headed for a gorge about 50 K’s up the road.
