SATURDAY 3 JULY CARNARVON
In the morning, went to the Growers Market in the town centre. There were lots of tomatoes, capsicums, grapefruit, bananas and other vegies. Carnarvon was a very productive agricultural centre, reliant on irrigation water from under the Gascoyne River bed. We stocked up – very good value.
I bought a Weekend Australian. A newspaper again!
After lunch, John bowled. This caravan park had its own bowling green – which was the reason we always went there! Regular competitions were run throughout the tourist season – which we were right in the middle of. John was very rusty, he said.
I read my paper.
Friend M phoned. She and friend were at Nanga, south of here, on their hire car jaunt. She would contact us when they reached Carnarvon on Tuesday. That was a couple of days later than they’d planned to be in town. We could have stayed out in the bush for another couple of nights!
Fortunately, I was able to extend our booking here by a night.
Garlic prawns for tea tonight – lovely.
