It was a well worn path along the Lions Road over the Border Ranges back into Queensland.
Back into the Sunshine State on the first day of winter in Australia
It’s amazing that no matter how often a route is travelled there is something new to find.
The first find was Goomeri on the western side of the Great Divide.
The pear danish would rival any patisserie in the world and the Goomeri emporium and saddlery a blast from the past.
But my aim was the sea again.
To 1770, named after the year of Cooks landing, was where I came back to the Pacific.
Back at the long sandy beaches and the fisherman casting into the sea after Australian Salmon
Sunrise heralded the dawn of a glorious day.
Perfect for some sight seeing on the estuary
Or a walk in the coastal forest
And good weather even for a swim.
Ah nice to be in warm water.
And heading north in winter
