Clairview Beach sunrise

Clairview Beach sunrise, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

It is 18 months since we stayed at Claireview beach. How time flies. It had not changed, new managers, but still the same laid back beach lifestyle.

I was quite surprised when Lyn, one of the locals remembered us. She remembered I had come originally from Yorkshire and of course every one remembers Jack and his pants…

Lyn invited me to join in the morning “Hoy” session. It is played twice a month at the pub that we camped next to. I had never heard of it but it turns out to be a type of Bingo played with cards instead of numbers. Approximately 20 women and one man turned up and being country folks most brought along a plate of home-baked goodies for morning tea. It was $3-50 for 2 cards and I won one hand and then I was asked to draw the door prize and I pulled out my number, how about that!!! I won a teatowel.

Stayed a couple of days then moved on to Emu Park another beautiful beach area 20km from Rockhampton. We are in Bell Park caravan park it is a council run park and is right on the beach. We were last here 1992 and the small township of Emu Park has certainly changed since then with a whole new shopping complex sprung up. It is still being finished with a large IGA supermarket half-finished. Today, right next to the caravan park the local Lions club is putting on a “Octoberfest” music, stalls, food and beer… I can hear the bands tuning up now so after lunch we will wander over to join in the fun…
