Dicky Beach - Day 2

Day 74 - Tuesday 23 July 2013

It rained practically all night last night - Caloundra had 10 mm in the last 24 hours mainly overnight. We spent a nervous night wondering whether the re-sealing of the front hatch had fixed the leaks that we had in Bundaberg. Good news - we have no leaks! The forecast for today is mostly sunny with a temperature range of 8 to 20 degrees, although 8 degrees is a bit on the chilly side.

David was up early to take the Navara to Sunshine Coast Nissan, which was only about 2.5 kms away, for a 120,000 km service. They promised to have the service done by 1:30 pm, then drove David back to the caravan park, with a further promise to pick him up when the service was done. Excellent service which is not always forthcoming at other dealers.

Later in the morning Frosty and Marg came by and suggested a coffee across the road at Dicky's Café. It was good to catch up face to face after spending many months following each others blog-sites. Di and Marg spent their time comparing fossicking experiences with a bit of show and tell on the gemstone front. Di's enthusiasm for a bit more fossicking has been rekindled - I'm not sure whether that is a good thing or not.

Later in the morning we went for a walk around the caravan park to check out the facilities - the park is much larger than we had thought. There are more than 300 sites with about 100 being permanent sites. We were pleased to find a drive up dump point near the back of the park so we will using it before we leave next week.

We rather like this park with its shopping strip across the road and the Dicky Beach Surf Club at the back door and the beach nearby, so we plan to stay here for about 4 weeks next year. People making bookings of over 4 weeks have to wait until after 23 October to make a booking so it is in the diary already.

We spent the rest of the day sitting in the sun reading - very pleasant. We finished the day with home made pizzas for dinner cooked on our pizza stone in the BabyQ. The trick is to get the stone very hot before putting the pizzas on the stone - they take about 10 minutes to cook and the crusts come out very crispy - very yummy!

No photos today.
