Creek to Creek
Monday 30th July
Monday is washing day!!!! So I thought ‘I’ll use my new washing machine aka bucket with a lid!!!!’. So we stuffed all the dirty clothes into the bucket and put it in the shower, the intention being that the bumping on the road will agitate the clothes and clean them……it works!!!!!
Then it was off to Sharon Nature Park (121) and time to hang out the washing.Great amenities, but very close to the road so lots of traffic noise.
Tuesday 31st July
While I was doing my Tai Chi, I chanced upon a sign for a one kilometre bush walk down to the Burnett River. Ron was filled with enthusiasm at the prospect (not).
After our walk it was off to Gin Gin to replenish supplies. We then tootled down the road to Lake Monduran and the Fred Haigh Dam for lunch.Then it was off to Granite Creek Rest Area (115) – a pretty little spot (recommended by the folk we met in Bundy) but again quite close to the road and noisy.
We had a great sundowners with a couple in the van across the way and a few others joined in as well. Then it was another really cold night (The night before last, it was colder inside Indy than it was in the fridge!!!!!)
Wednesday 1st AugustToday we are staying on at Granite Creek….no need to hurry anywhere!!!! But that doesn’t stop us finding me little jobs to do.
Today, I cut Ron’s hair, finished off my ‘Wattle socks’ – to keep my tootsises warm and worked on my photos and diary. I thought Wattle Socks so appropriate because of the colour and it would also be Wattle Day today if Bill Haydon hadn’t mucked about when he was Governor General and changed it to 1st September!!!!! I have almost given up on blogging – the internet is spasmodic at best and our phones seldom have coverage!!!!!
But I shall soldier on regardless!!!!!!!
