Saturday 18th January - MansfieldA warmer night getting down to only 12.6 and back upto 32.4 today. We started the day with a phone call from the Real estate Agent, saying that the Gold Coast had been inundated with flooding rain, and yes, our house has sprung a few leaks. It turns out that water is pouring through one of the down lights and puddles are forming all over our brand new timber flooring. Seems cupboard damage to the kitchen and also later we learn that the outside air-conditioner compressor was partially submerged. The tenants took a video of it and it's not very pleasant to watch. Hopefully Suncorp Insurance to the rescue - we hope. Clive went for a walk in the afternoon, as beside the Information Centre is the Great Victorian Rail Trail. This part - the Mansfield Line runs from Mansfield Station to Tallarook, a distance of 121km. There is also a branch line of 13km from Cathkin to Alexandra. He just did the 1.5km return section around the Mullen Wetlands. Actually he walked 2.28km return. The Mullen Wetlands is a peaceful area with plenty of birdlife and seating to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. The Wetlands don't actually start for the first 500m as this is taken up by the old railway turntable, water tank and pit area. Some of the trees are signed with their Latin name as well as their common name. A good wheel chair friendly walk. We are booked into the Molesworth Recreation Reserve and Caravan Park tomorrow. It apparently only has two - yes two powered sites, so I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. What has Clive done this time?
