Yesterday and today were spent driving with no excitement to report. Last night was spent at the Belyando Crossing Roadhouse between Charters Towers and Emerald, another place that Telstra has not yet found.
This morning we woke to the sound of rain for the first time in the entire period we have been away. We drove in it for several hours but the car and van don’t look any better for the experience.
What was different about today was that we spent the entire day driving on bitumen for the first time since we passed through Borroloola.
Tonight we are at Eidsvold where it is somewhat colder than we are used to, en route to Hervey Bay from where we are going to Lady Elliot to spend the last two days of our spectacular holiday.
We expect Lady Elliot to be the usual mix of snorkelling and diving with turtles, manta rays etc. so I am not proposing to do any further blogs. This is the last one.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading the blog as much as I have enjoyed preparing it. It is a fantastic summary of our holiday which I will get printed to remind us of the great adventures we have had.
