SATURDAY 20 JUNE TOWNSVILLE
There was some cloud about. I walked to the Castletown shops for the weekend papers.
After lunch, drove to the Strand. Being the weekend, there were lots of people out and about and it was harder to get parking. We had to go some way up a side street for it.
Walked on the Strand. There were a couple of weddings happening – great setting for them.
Sat for a while and watched children enjoying the brilliant water playground that was a feature. I wished I could magically transport the three grandchildren here – they would adore it.
Back at camp, I made an Asian style prawn salad for tea.
I did regret having made our booking here for such a long period. It had seemed the right thing at the time, with the uncertainty over how long Truck repairs would take, and with the busy season pressure on bookings – school holidays and the like. But the time here was dragging for me, and I was conscious of all those lovely other places we could be exploring.
