It rained most of the night, so we woke to the ground being very wet and muddy. From what we could see most of the sites at the park are on very sloppy ground, we had our jokey wheel to the highest it could go to get level. We saw one van that had dug a hole and put their draw bar into to get themselves level. Chris said for the price we are paying you would expect level sites, a concrete slab instead of the mud we had this morning and a hole to put the sullage into instead of it just running under the van. One plus of the rain it has washed some of the hoppers off.
We left the park around 10am, we haven’t travelled far today, we have pulled into a rest area just outside Everton next to the river , rest area is called Pioneer Bridges. There were 2 vans, a motorhome and a tent when we pulled in just before lunch. An hour or so later there are another 2 big van’s and 2 car loads of people tenting it. Correct that another little motorhome has come in. This stop has a tick in the Camps Australia 5 book but it is a bit close to the road for us to give a tick too. Has lots of tall trees which you put yourself in between, we can’t get our awning out all the way, at one end it does have a sandy beach area to give good access to the water or put a canoe in.
We just went for a walk and chatted to some of our neighbours, 2 couples away for a few days. They only live an hour away and have given us a few tips on some free camping areas in the Mansfield area. A little local knowledge goes along way.We are just relaxing this arvo, catching up on some computer stuff and reading some books. It is still overcast with the occasionally drizzle; it is supposed to clear this arvo.
