Tuesday 27th August - Capricorn Caves

11.6 last night and got to a top of 31 today, so another warm day but not too hot,

We left Rocky just after 10 and arrived at The Capricorn Cave Van Park about 11. Part of the way was a one lane road but at least it was all black top. Be careful what you wish for. I wanted some peace and quiet from neighbouring vans but this is going to the extreme. We are the ONLY van here so far and it's so peaceful.

This little park can only take 19 powered vans and is set in a nice bush land area. There is also room for about the same number of non-powered sites and across the road about 100m away is their own tent and glamping set up. The sites are all gravel and dirt and sadly none of them are level. Clive had to use two wheel ramps on one side to try and get it somewhere near level. We are out in the bush - no doubt about that as there are also no lights at night, so it's a torch if you want to do the toilet walk. There is also limited phone coverage and no interent.

The Caves are supposed to be wheel chair friendly, but we'll see about that when we do a tour tomorrow. By 6pm there are another 5 motorhomes parked here but it's so peaceful, (so far). Clive went out to look at the stars.

Curry for Clive for dinner and a toasted sandwich for me. Happy birthday to my Clive's baby brother.

There are different
cattle statues all around.
