|Townsville port early Sat. morn|
the picture left is the view over the ocean from where we first parked up on Port road.
We spent the weekend and the first few days of the week at Currajong, doing a bit of shopping and catching with a few friends before departing on Thursday 20th, making our way south.
We got as far as Homehill yesterday spending the night at the comfort stop, it is a well set up stop-over with laundry, showers etc. I made use of the laundry while there.

|Marion creek - low tide|
|Marion creek - high tide|
The two photo's of the creek show a little of what I saw between the high and low of the tides.
We stayed here until Thursday then ventured in to Sarina.
After restocking the larder at Woolworth's this morning and checking the real estate we drove out to Sarina beach where we had a look at a property, spending a couple of days there. The beach is long and the tide goes out a long way but it is all sand no matter what the tide.
|Coal loading terminal at Hay point|
Drove around the corner to Campwin beach this morning where we had a good view of the coal loading terminal at Hay Point, south of Mackay, and the surrounding seascape. BEAUTIFUL!! I counted 13 ships waiting to get into the wharf to do what they do.
Later in the afternoon we drove back into Sarina township parking near the sports park for the next couple of days.
The local showground markets are on today, held on the last Sunday of every month. I took a drive out to have a look, it is a huge market with all sorts of anything that you might want (and some you may not). I only had a quick look as I will take more time when it comes around again next month.
Awaiting real estate agents!!
October is over! I'll blog again in November.
