Dicky Beach - Day 9

Day 80 - Tuesday 30 July 2013

Forecast for today was 13 to 21 degrees with intermittent clouds, and that is generally how it turned out - thankfully no rain. After breakfast David drove over to Maroochydore Camping to pick up some Bio-Magic that they had ordered in for us last week. While he was there he got one of our gas bottles filled. Back at camp we did a few odd jobs until lunch. We also booked a powered site at Ashley Gardens Caravan Park in Melbourne from 10 to 14 September 2013, as the end of September gets quite busy in Melbourne. We are booked on the ferry for 14 September.

After lunch we decided to go for a drive up to Mooloolaba for a walk around and a coffee, then we drove to Caloundra for another walkabout. Not a great deal of activity at Mooloolaba, and even less at Caloundra although the fishermen were out trying to catch black fish (otherwise known as luderick) - but why any self-respecting fish would take a hook with seaweed on it is beyond me.

Back at camp we walked over to our Club for a final Happy Hour as tomorrow we are on our way to Southport. Back at camp we packed away the awning and all the shade cloths while it was still fine. Dinner tonight was rolled beef olives cooked in the slow cooker with potatoes, carrots and peas - as usual very nice.
