Sunday 27th October - GreenvaleAnother really hot day getting to 38, but again a cool evening getting down to 15.5. The aircon has been on since 11.30am, but Clive has been sitting outside reading. We've decided to go to the local hotel for lunch. This is within walking distance as about 1pm we head over there. It's certainly hot outside in the sun. So off to the Three Rivers Hotel we go. Clive has his hat on to keep the shiny top from getting sunburnt. Clive decided on a steak and salad and I had a ham and cheese toasted sandwich. The bread was thick and lovely. I was going to eat it all, but decided to only eat half so that I could have some waffles with chocolate and ice cream and salted caramel sauce. Yes, my eyes were bigger than my stomach. I managed to eat two thirds of it and Clive polished off the rest. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meals we chose. Nothing like a good country pub lunch, a few cold beers and a bottle of wine to wash the food down. Back to the van to turn the aircon back on, it got to 35, and a lie down and sleep for both of us. Well, what else do you do after a good meal and a drink in the middle of the day? Off to Charters Towers tomorrow. Over 200km away, so a long drive for us.
