Day 259. Mission Beach

Just lazing by the pool...

Nobody stirred until after 7am. Scarlett was the first up; and by the time Bec and I woke she had already gotten herself dressed and was about to start brushing her teeth. To bad she hadn't had breakfast yet...

Our camp at Mission Beach

We talked her into climbing into bed with us for a while, and we all laid back and watched cartoons. Later that morning (and not wanting to break her routine), Scarlett wanted to spend some more time in the pool. So I took her over and swam/played with her, while Bec did some work on the computer and around the van. I must say; the weather is definitely on the improve, but the showers are still persistent. Hopefully it will clear in the next day or so.

What have I gotten myself into?
An hour or two later, we climbed out of the pool and joined Bec who wanted to get some grocery shopping done. We all jumped in the car and went over to Mission Beach, just to find out that Woolworths isn't open on a Sunday. Bugger! So with empty shopping bags and a full wallet, we decided to check out the 'strip' (if that's what you can call it). There are only a couple of touristy style shops here, and a few restaurants, so it didn't take long to do. Still, it was nice to just walk around checking out the shops and walking along the beach. However, we did end up getting Scarlett another set of swimming goggles, as she lost her last pair back in Cairns.

We returned to the van for lunch, and it wasn't long before Scarlett talked me into going back over to the pool. I was there for about an hour, before Bec 'tagged me' and took over Life Guard duties. I disappeared back to the van to catch the second race of the V8 Supercars on the Gold Coast. I enjoyed watching the race while sipping a few 'Bundies', before Bec and Scarlett finally returned from the pool after a couple of hours. That kid really is a water nymph - we just can't keep her out of the pool!

We finished the day with a walk along the foreshore up to the Surf Club; before returning into town to enjoy Pizza for dinner.... Nice.
