Mission Beach to Cairns Sunland Leisure Park. Sun 3th July

Always good to sleep in a proper bed with clean sheets and soft pillows after 12 nights of "tenting".

After more wine than I've had in a long time, I slept well, but woke up feeling less than perfect. Nothing that coffee could not fix, and not having tents etc to pack, we were on the road earlier than usual. A gentle scenic route out from Mission Beach to the highway and on to Cairns and the Sunland Leisure Park. A very short ride, only 120km. M and U had camped here back in 2012 while waiting for parts for the VStrom, while I had pressed on thru Daintree and up the Bloomfield Track to Queenstown.

Peak tourist season in this part of the country, so accommodation is tight in all the caravan parks in town. We manage to find a piece of lawn big enough to fit the 2 tents & our bikes. $10 per person per night. On the positive side, convenient to the laundry and washing lines! 😆

While I hung out the washing,  M and U headed off for their luncheon appointment.

Tomorrow we take the bikes in for a tyre refresh and while that is being done, a visit to the Telstra shop to resume my battle to get a working sim card in my tablet.
