Raining in Cairns

Day 55 - Thursday 4 July 2013

Raining in Cairns today - the first rain we have seen since Shepparton in Victoria. The temperature today was 19 to 26 degrees with relative humidity of 88%. We headed into the City this morning as we both had hair cuts. With us both looking much trimmer we headed for Cairns Central for a wander around the shops before lunch at an Italian Restaurant in the centre. Di had Char-grilled Chicken Salad while David had Calamari with Salad. Shopping resulted in a couple of Polo shirts for David and some shoes for Di.

Back at the Caravan Park we started to pack up as the rain had stopped, as we are leaving for Townsville in the morning. We booked our site at the Coral Coast Tourist Park in Townsville some time ago as we were concerned about the Queensland School Holidays. It was just as well that we did book ahead, as this weekend Townsville becomes rev-head heaven with 3 days of V8 Supercars - Would you like to swap places, Frosty?

The other night I had a call from Nick Tall, who is travelling north in company with Geoff Creese and their wives. They leave Townsville on Friday to make way for the V8 Supercars, while we will arrive in Townsville after they have left - so unlikely that we will catch up this trip.

Our new friends in their Trailblazer came back from a trip to Mossman today to find that a camper-trailer was set up in front of the 5th wheeler with no space for them to hitch up and move their van. Just as well they are here for a couple of more days. The Dill in the camper trailer (need I say a Victorian) thought that they would be able to hook a rope on the hitch of their van and pull it sideways. As they say you can tell a Victorian but you can't tell them much!

No photos today.

Would you like to swap places, Frosty?
Yep, Go Lowndesy.

What's this ??? about Vics, but the camper-trailer guy is a real Dill.

Now your Trailblazer Triplet.
