Where I stayed
We managed to get away from Yeppoon around 9am, filling up for fuel in Rockhampton an hour or so later.
The drive was fairly long and a little on the tense side with the roads a bit narrow, predominantly single lane and trucks charging up and down this particular section of the Bruce Highway. For a time there we were tailgated by a semi trailer who insisted that our 100km/h in a 100 zone was too slow, at one point pulling over to the oncoming lane and flashing his lights.
Eventually I found a slip lane to get out of his way and let the maniac pass
This aside, it was a fairly 'vanilla' day - pack up, drive, a couple of toilet stops, arrive at new caravan park by 2pm, set up, grocery shopping, cook dinner, relax.
Both Wendy and I managed to squeeze in some exercise amongst all that and Mitchell and I had a quick kick of the footy down at the surf beach before dinner.
