Ewen Maddock Dam, The Ginger Factory ...November 8, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C
Leaving the cafe we set off for a picnic lunch at a lake. A lovely spot and a lovely watermelon!
After that we drove on to Yandina to visit a macadamia processing plant and also The Ginger Factory. Both were very touristy. I love macadamia nuts but they are pretty pricey in England. I hoped they would be cheaper here, but they weren’t. Just before we were leaving, we decided to sample their range of maybe 20 different flavour coatings on the nuts. The girl behind the counter told us to sample as many as we liked as she was going to throw them away when we left - it was 4:45 and they shut at 5. Jokingly I asked if she would just put them all int a bag and we’d take them with is .... which she did! Great result.
We can see smoke ahead of us and smell wood fire. We haven’t heard anything yet.
We pulled into the slightly less busy campsite to be told that there are bushfires north around Noosa and some campsites are closed so extra people are coming to this one, never mind. We have worked out that the van is so well insulated against the heat, it’s pretty good against noise.
Hooked up like pros, red wine open, insect repellent on, life is good.Read more
