St Lawrence - Thursday

Nothing much to put on the blog today. Just a morning walk and a lazy wet day.
Mostly packed up and ready to go in the morning. We are heading to Mt Morgan tomorrow.

St Lawrence - Wednesday

Brrrrr! A bit chilly this morning, down to 7c. Had to put the heater on for the first time for ages, glad it still works.
We went for an early morning walk,

kangaroos all over the place. It's a lovely sunny day today and only a slight breeze for a change. Uh oh, spoke too soon about the wind! Quite gusty now.
The wind died down later and it is now a pleasant evening. We've had our tea and now for a few drinks before bed.

St Lawrence - Tuesday

We left Airlie Beach at 8:30 this morning and had a good run down to St Lawrence getting here for lunch after a coffee break at Sarina. There was very little traffic and it was a pleasant drive.
We expected a lot of vans here at St Lawrence with all the caravans from the southern states heading north, but we were pleasantly surprised, it is very quiet and we were able to get our favourite spot.

We plan to stay here for three nights.

Airlie Beach - Monday

Well, Barbara's birthday today. We walked into Airlie, taking a bottle of wine with us, bought fish and chips (barramundi) and had a birthday lunch on the beach, drinking red wine out of disposable plastic beakers.

It has been a nice day and a great way to end our holiday as tomorrow we start to make our way home. We'll probably get home on the 27th or 28th.
Meanwhile it's steak and chips for tea tonight (and maybe a drink or two).

Airlie Beach - Sunday

Today has been a lazy day. We were both too tired to do very much, so nothing to mention in the blog.
We'll be doing more tomorrow with it being Barbara's birthday (might involve a bit of drinking).

Airlie Beach - Saturday

Tired little legs this evening. Walked into Airlie Beach this morning, about 5km, wandered around the market and around the town, had lunch and then walked back again.
The day was fine if a little windy, but the sky has gone quite black and we've just had a bit of rain.
Saturday night, so we're having roast chicken to go with our drinkies. 😀🍷🍷🍷🍷

Airlie Beach - Friday

After a restless night at Home Hill (kept awake by trains going past during the night), we wanted to get away early, so cup of tea and a shower and off we went.

So it was breakfast at Guthalungra. Nice and grassy and NO trains. I think we'll make it a stopover next time we travel up north.
It was blowing a gale coming down to Airlie Beach and it was from the south, so our fuel economy took a bit of a hiding with the head on wind. Luckily the hills at Airlie Beach provide some shelter from the southerly and it is only a breeze here.
We have checked in to the Sea Breeze Caravan Park at Cannonvale for four days and have an nice site close to the amenities.
All set up for our Friday happy hour(s).
