How quickly a week goes when you’re on holidays. Time never passes that quickly at work does it! As we were beginning our slow journey back south the next day we had a bit of washing to catch up on first. Once that was done and drying on the line we headed off for a morning walk along Mulambin Beach.
As we returned to the caravan park we spotted some Bush Stone-curlews. They are a bit of a weird looking bird but they do have pretty good camouflaging with the feather pattern on their wings. Having said that they are best known for their mournful cry that can keep you awake during the night.
After a late lunch we read for a while before doing a bit of packing up and retracted the awning ready for our departure the next day. In keeping with the theme we drove into Yeppoon to eat out rather than cooking or barbecuing. After a quick walk along the strip of restaurants on Anzac Parade we settled on Afishionados Seafood. I ate a seafood basket and Karen had a fillet of snapper. Beautifully cooked and service was really good. (Sadly I believe this restaurant is no longer in business.) After paying our bill we took a stroll along the beach side of Anzac Parade. It was a balmy night and ideal for a walk.
A number of tiled sculptures caught our eye. This one in particular.
A quick drive and we were back at our caravan for a reasonably early night in readiness for the 300 km drive south the next day.
