THURSDAY AUGUST 22     FORREST BEACH

The weather was pleasant again today – not too hot.

I phoned the caravan park at Flying Fish Point, and got in, tomorrow, for a week. Given how popular it seemed, and how busy it still was  here, I was rather surprised. Then I went up to the office/bottle shop and paid for our extra night’s stay – $30.

We drove into Ingham to shop. I would miss the pleasant drive into town, and the changing mosaic of activity in the cane fields.

John had found a blown fuse in his dash cam charger, and replaced same, but it kept blowing the fuse. It was an e-bay “bargain”, so there wasn’t much he could do except look for a new, and better charger.

Back at camp, we walked Couey on the beach, for the last time.

Got to just beyond the end house at Cassadys Beach. She had a really good frolic. It was a happy dog when its people were in one place and she could do her dog work of minding them properly!

A happy dog…

We did some preliminary packing up.

I cooked John’s flathead in batter and made fries. I had a piece of red emperor that I’d bought in Ingham – guaranteed no bones!

Had a text from son. He’d enjoyed the letter I wrote a while ago. I’d texted him a photo of John’s fishy catch, and he responded to that.
