We have had a very pleasant 10 days at Inskip Point but will leave tomorrow (Friday) before the weekend hordes arrive.
Vicki has put in a lot of time and effort fishing for very little return. She had some small whiting and dart for lunch yesterday but anything of any size has alluded her. There are a lot of people fishing with not much to show for their efforts. The barge to Fraser Island is busy with a constant flow of traffic to and from the island. Apparently over the holiday periods three barges work from dawn to dusk it gets so busy, you even have to queue to get on. We see lots of four wheel drive buses taking tourists on day excursions to the island.
We have had brumbies in the camp ground of a night and from tracks in the sand it appears the odd dingo wanders the beach during the night. Unlike Fraser Island you don’t see any during the day.
Tomorrow we head off for Bribie Island to visit Vicki’s sister and brother in law. It will be good to see them again. We are looking forward to spending the Christmas period with family and friends in Brisbane as it will be the first time we have done this in quite a few years.
Have been into Rainbow Beach a couple of times to get supplies as it is only a ten minute drive from our camp. A nice little village with a patrolled surf beach. We have swum every day here at Inskip Point. We did have some bluebottles in the water at one stage but they have mainly disappeared now.
It was very still last night with no breeze and we had our fan going for most of the night. There was supposed to be a change in the weather yesterday with rain developing until Saturday but so far with the exception of three spits of rain we have not experienced the change.
