Wednesday 11th September - BowenGusty and windy again today with a low of 11.4 and a top of only 25.2. Is that a cloud in the sky I see ? Clive decided that he was going into town for a walk this morning while I slept. He drove into town early and parked in the centre od town. He then started taking photos of all the murals. Up one side of the street and then back down the other. It was the best time of day as there was very little traffic about and he got some good pictures. From here he then went and parked near the Jetty and decided to walk along there. The jetty is just over 800m long and was originally built in 1867. It has been re-built and extended as the need for the ability to take larger ships grew and was last done in the 1950's. It was damaged and closed when cyclone Debbie hit the coast and was re-opened in 2017 in time for it's 150th birthday. This isn't a straight jetty as there is a curve to the left that now is home to tugs that service parts of the coast. You can see from the pictures the difference in the structure from wood with the old railway line to concrete at the very end. Like the jetty in Hervey Bay this was longer than it is today. There were a few people fishing there but no one was having much luck. In the afternoon he re-worked the trip so that we can go south via the Gold Coast and drop some stuff off out of the van that we have not used in the past four months. So now instead of going down through NSW when we get to Roma we'll head towards Toowoomba and head down to Sydney via the coast. That's the third major re-work of the trip so far. It's now basically planned until February 2020. Time for some more reading and left over pizza for dinner.
