Thursday 6th November 2014

Up with the lark & a fond farewell to Doolies Tin shack Tavern. A confusing fuel stop / bog visit enroute presented Ian with the puzzle of , was he a bloke or a Shiela ?

After a fairly uneventful 3hr drive we arrived in Nebo,,( Which we speculate is near Su Bo & Next to Elbow ! )

We stopped at their Historic Hotel, The historic guy propping up the bar invited us to try the Historic walk through the village, We suspected he kept a 12 bore shot gun in his truck & might appear in our rear view window, as we chose to avoid the Historic walk & 90+ degree heat.

Ian purchased a massive pizza, a valliant effort was made to finish it, flies & all.

Thank Goodness we didn't have to rely on this old pump for fuel.

Another 3+ hour drive to Airlie beach & through Mount Osser, offered some stunning views as the road wound on through the never ending sugar cane fields.

After checking in to our " Motor lodge "  Airlie beach beckoned for a tea time stroll.

No stroll would be complete without a beer stop.

After a refreshing shower we visited the " Lovely India " Restaurant & Bar.
We puzzled the mix of Indian & Auzzie/Yankee staff by refusing to order our meal , all at once ..Fearing the usual , everything arriving at once problem we often experience on hols.

My starter was mind bogglingly enormous, thank heaven for Ian who obligingly ate most of it for me.
Goodness knows what the main course will bring ( If they ever figure out we haven't ordered it yet ! )

Anyway going sailing tomorrow, Shiver me timbers , hoist the mainbrace..
See you when the fog lifts xxx
