We spent a long weekend relaxing with Dave, Paula & kids. On Friday we had a slow start and Dave cooked crepes. After breakfast we drove into town then up onto the headland. We walked down to a nice beach and explored the rock pools and watched the surfers. For lunch we went out to a café then we spent the afternoon back at the caravan park where the kids jumped on the bouncy pillow, swam in the pool and played at the park. The park is full of kids and it’s great for families.
Almost all of Saturday was spent at the beach. The weather was great and we swam in the sea, made sand castles and had a picnic. It was hard to see how this can be called winter.
On Sunday the caravan park was emptying out as it was the last day of the QLD school holidays. We packed up and said goodbyes to Dave and Paula and kids. We cycled into town and got to the ferry wharf. We had a nice 45 minute wait for the ferry watching the pelicans. The ferry ride across the river Ikula was lively as there was a lunchtime cruise with a live band. We decided we weren’t going to cycle today as the road would be busy and we were tired after a social weekend. We checked into a caravan park in Ikula, did some laundry, relaxed and planned the route ahead.
