The mood took us

& we drove north on Wednesday afternoon. 700 kilometers, into the sugarcane growing area of the Burdekin. Put the feet up for a couple of days, used the "internet café" — the local video store — to catch up on emails but did nothing else. Drove back today, more or less sans pause.

The only major thing to report is that the koala signs which I've always been convinced are there purely to keep tourists happy are actually genuine, there really are koalas in the parts the signs say they are — we picked up one in the headlights scuttling rapidly across the road, fortunately on the other side, as we were driving home. There was a family of wallabies that weren't so lucky, three of them newly dead near a culvert. But on the other side of the ledger, we also saw an echidna disappearing into the grasses on the roadside.
