MONDAY 5 APRIL STREAKY BAY
It was a very hot day.
Having yesterday made a gesture towards my wish to do some “tourist stuff”, John spent yet another day on the phone/internet hook up problem. This involved phone calls to Telstra – long ones!
I walked up to the shops and posted a card to grand daughter, and paid the Telstra bill at the Post Office.
I went for a short walk in the other direction, away from the town, along a rather interesting-looking cycle/walk path that follows the southern shore of the bay around. It was too hot to walk far along here, though part of me was wishing we’d bought the bikes on this trip.
We had a talk with two Trakmaster owners we found in the park. Both had Nullarbor models. One of these had a number plate only three digits “younger” than ours – from 1997. It was the first full van Trakmaster had built, and was much more travelled than ours, being on the road most of the time. I was envious – not of the van, but of the almost full time travel!.
The guy from the van behind us caught lots of salmon today, out at Hallys Beach, reached from the Cape Bauer loop drive.
