Up around 6:30, not long after some mongrel in the next van up thinks it’s fine to start his generator. The missus must have wanted her expresso…. Selfish bastards….
Anyway, It’s a beautiful morning and the creek looks wonderful. We see another bunch of turtles come up, at least four. They must be used to being fed as they seem to close to bank where we are.

The wind continued all night, but it was still pretty comfortable and not too cold in the swag. I think we all had a better night’s sleep than in Birdsville.

Not the best night’s sleep, in some respect the swag is more comfortable, and slightly warmer. But still a good choice. Anyway I’m up early and get some more writing done.

Well today did not turn out as planned.
We agree that the best plan is to go to Birdsville, get George’s car checked and then see what options we have.

Ok, time to do it all over again. We figure as we’re no longer showing symptoms, and haven’t for over a week (other than tiredness) we should no longer be contagious, but we’ll make every effort to keep to ourselves.

We’re on the 3pm Ferry. I did call and double check when I realised we put Dawn on the 2:30 ferry the other day, surely there’s not two with 30mins of each other, they are not both listed on the timetable. Well I was wrong, there is.

A slow start. We’ve elected to drive the ~25km back up to Eli Creek. The kids get a swim and I get a last drive up the beach, I’d call that a win-win.

A complete lounge around and do nothing day. Normally I’m too fidgety to do nothing all day, but I make an exception. I make a big dint in the Sam Neill memoir, the kids do some swimming and watch too much TV. (It’s a double edge sword that the resort Wifi seems to reach the room and specifically the smart tele so we’ve signed into our Netflix account). Justine does some cross stitch. As I said lazy day all round.
