11.10.2018 – Pine Rivers Showgrounds, Lawnton, QLD

Time to chill until we return to Brisbane for Mike to work at the Brisbane Pre-Christmas Caravan & Camping Show at the end of October.  We have moved further north from the Brisbane CBD to stay at Pine Rivers Showgrounds at Lawnton and use it as a base.  Right next door, aquatic centre with heated pools if we felt inclined in all this rain, to go swimming.

Come to Queensland: “Beautiful One Day – Perfect the Next”.

Not quite.  Practically non-stop rain/drizzle for days, so much so that the area around our camp site was waterlogged. Near to us, in a great expanse of lawn, a pond was forming. Even the water birds look miserable. We are told by locals this is unusual for this time of year and according to the reports on TV, we are located at the time when yet another weather record has being broken. The good news – mushrooms to pick!
