Dicky Beach - Day 10

Day 43 - Saturday 9 August 2014

Fine again and 22 degrees today.

Today we drove to the Strawberry Fields strawberry farm at nearby Palmview. We started with ice-creams, strawberry - what else - then wandered around the farm and watched people picking their own. The pick your own area was well picked over and ripe strawberries seemed few and far between, and as it made no difference to the price - $16.00 a kilo whether you had picked your own or not - we bought a pack of premium strawberries from the shop.

On the way back we called in to the Ettamogah Pub also at Palmview for a walk around.

That evening we went to our club - the Dicky Beach Surf Club for a few drinks and a meal. As usual the food was excellent and they had live music - a muso with a music machine, a guitar and a violin. Given that the audience were largely of the grey nomad variety they appreciated the music from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
