Fraser Island/Town of 1770 – 17th May

So this was the day we were leaving the Kingfisher Resort so I decided that I had to swim in one of the pools. I had breakfast first and then went over to the pools and found one that was tucked in a corner out of sight of the dinning room. At 8am I had a twenty minute swim in my private pool and the only person I saw was a grounds man collecting fruit that had dropped from nearby trees. This was definitely paradise. I was wondering how I could replicate this back home!

Regretfully, I had to get out and get showered before final packing for 9:30. I took a couple of photos before we boarded buses that took us down to the ferry.

The return journey on the ferry was just as glorious as the journey over. I saw lots of sea birds and I think I got a glimpse of a pair of dolphins!

We were met by Laurie the coach driver with his very plush Fun Over 50 coach – leather seats, air conditioning and USB charging points – very handy!

Lunch was a buffet, a short drive away in Maryborough. Then we were up the coast towards the Town of 1770 (which is where Captain Cook first landed in Australia.) On the way we stopped in Bundaberg (famous for rum and soft drinks) for a comfort stop. Then there was another hour and a half until we got to Lagoon 1770 resort just before 5pm. It was a good journey as I managed to knit the whole way and completed one square and started the next. But I realised that I didn’t have my cable needle so I am hoping that there isn’t any cabling in this strip!

The room is lovely and I am looking forward to the three nights we are staying here and I have wifi!  

Supper was at 6:30 and I had chosen trout which was delicious and this was followed by sticky date pudding with ice cream – very yummy! Marilyn and I shared a bottle of red again – very agreeably!

After supper I had a wander around the resort to check out the pools and the spa! By 8 I was back in my room chilling out to a bit of tv and catching up with the the blog.
