Dicky Beach

Day 73 - Monday 22 July 2013

Forecast for today at Dicky Beach 11 to 21 degrees and cloudy - in fact as the day has progressed the cloud has become heavier and I would not be surprised if it rained later. Its nice having the shops across the road as we needed milk for breakfast so got the papers as well. Later we went for a walk starting at a café across the road then walked out onto Dicky Beach. On the way back to the caravan park we called in to the Dicky Beach Surf Club and signed up for three years membership for$8.00 - how good is that! Dicky Beach is named after the SS Dicky, an iron steamship that ran aground in 1893.

After lunch we drove to Currimundi which is about 2.5 km away for fuel and groceries at Woollies - we wanted to check out where Currimundi was as we are getting the Navara serviced there tomorrow. Its a major service - 120,000 kms - so will probably take all day. Its 10,000 kms since we left home so we will also have to get the Cooper Tyres rotated and balanced later in the week to maintain the 80,000 km warranty. We also drove over to Caloundra to get some more Sikaflex at Bunnings to replace what we had used on the roof yesterday. On the way back we drove down to Moffat Beach for a look see - Michelle recommends the pizzas and it is within walking distance from our caravan park.
