We spent one more night on the road at the Boyne River Rest Area close to Gladstone. It was memorable for a flat parking spot, a retro mobile coffee and donut van, and some cattle coming to visit near the fence and staying long enough for me to photograph them.
We arrived in Rockhampton yesterday and are staying at Kershaw Gardens free camping spot, along with many others, of course. We rested, then had a walk around to see what is here. at Anaconda I bought walking sandals and Stephen bought some light trousers.
This morning we went to get fresh water, then to Bunnings for portasol and Autobarn for sunscreens for the car. We stopped at a very busy laundromat to do a load of washing, then back to the free camping area. We couldn’t get our good spot on the fence overlooking the park this time, but we can’t complain, it’s free and well located. Stephen just walked over to Coles for a few essentials.
We’ve had quite a busy time here getting some important things done, but we want to start heading west tomorrow.
