We are off tomorrow for a short holiday to North Queensland, get away from the 2 degree mornings here, having a couple of days back home in Yeppoon, then a slow trip as far as Mission Beach and back to Townsville for the HF Radio Club get together and a day at the V8's.
So if you see this rigImage Could Not Be Found give us a call on UHF 40 and say hello.

Hey Bruce,

Can you and Annie grab a big can of sunshine way up north and post it down to us poor folk who live in NSW. Cold as charity here in Tamworth this time of year.

Have a great trip mate and give Annie a hug from me.

Cheers

No worries John, might be a bit hard for the can of sunshine, but I am sure I can give Annie a hug from you lol. We have had a funny winter here no 0's as yet and the occasional shower but the fire has been going non stop.

There is a great caravan park at Cowley Beach just north of Mission Beach.
The lessee is John Simpson and he has cleaned out the riff raff (his words) who were permanents there. When we stayed there last month our van was 10>15 paces from the beach. The place is very tidy and very clean. But be warned there isn't much to do there other than fishing and relaxing
The temperature dropped down to 18deg last night in Townsville and out came all the beanies, ugg boots & warm jackets. Though thongs were the norm for footwear.
Have a great stay in Gods' Country

I second that, I was stayed there for a week, take plenty of sand fly repellent, as I was bitten every time I went near the water.

There is nothing to do there other than fish, no pubs, no clubs and no shops etc (other than the Caravan Park shop)

Johns business partner Trevor spends his days there, and say "hello" to Dianne in the shop for me he he he
