Hello people, Mouse here.
I’m delighted to report that the Staff have located a new off-leash and fully-fenced dog park for me to zoom about in. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
I was a bit off-colour yesterday morning due to all the packing and upheavals, and didn’t feel like eating my breakfast, so Mum packed it up and brought it with us. Good job, really, as by lunchtime I was starving! As usual when we go north, lunchtime happens right around Bowen, and it’s pie-time. Funny, that…. Anyway, Dad was able to indulge (with a little help from Me) and Mum had a ham salad roll (I helped a bit with that, too). She said it was lovely bread and very tasty ham but it was far too large, so she had half and ate the other half another time.
We were making good time in the afternoon and Dad decided on a quick, ahem, ‘airing in Ayr‘. (Sorry about that, Mum will insist on that kind of thing.) (There has to be some compensation for slaving over my keyboard for you – Mum). So anyway, the Staff located a very nice, spiffy and brand new fenced off leash dog park for me to inspect.
It’s the Plantation Park off-leash dog park at 11-15 Kennedy St, Ayr. I’ll put it in the list of dog parks on the Resources and Information page too.
Anyway, after that we got to Townsville. Mum discovered that despite an email confirming our booking correctly, they had booked us into the wrong kind of site: no en suite bathroom, shock, horror! They had no vacant sites of the right kind as it’s currently the Townsville V-8 Supercars race week, so they put us in a powered site directly opposite the amenities block and waived all the fees for both nights, so we’re staying here for free!
And so to bed. Thursday’s a long day and we have quite a few things to get done while we’re here, including our visit to Miss Gail at GAP. So we all tucked ourselves up early. Bad Monkey is behaving himself, and is very grateful to have been brought along on this trip.
Time for my beauty sleep, I have a standard to maintain, after all…
