Where I stayed
We settled in for a cosy night with the heater on hoping the van was waterproof, thank God it was!!
Today was still quite windy but the rain has stopped.
Yeppoon, situated on the coast on the Tropic of Capricorn is a beautiful area. We contemplated going on a cruise to Great Keppel Island but the water looked a bit too choppy, like a BIG bit too choppy!
We spent the day sightseeing along the stunning coastline on the Scenic Highway.
At Emu Park there is a huge white sculpture on the headland overlooking Keppel Bay which was erected as a monument to Captain Cook
This evening we met up with 3 couples from Colac. Cocktail hour was very entertaining with plenty of stories exchanged about fishing, dairy farming and travels around Australia.
Another beautiful place and great day.
Tomorrow we go to Gladstone to meet up with our great friends Gina and Peter Kelly. We are also looking forward to catching up with their daughter Paula and her husband Anders and children Cain, Taige and Quinn and can't wait to celebrate Gina's 70th birthday on Saturday.
