077. Day 82. Day 82. Wednesday 3nd June 2009.
Another long day! We are at Rainbow Beach, it is windy and wet. The beach erosion here is pretty bad so gaining access to the beach is a dangerous exercise. The surf is yuck and there does not seem to be much to gain our attention under these conditions. We are out of here.
We drive less than 60 klms to Tin Can Bay and meet up with Rod Robertson, the father of a friend of Errols. He is Mr Hooker at Cooloola Cove and invites us to lunch then suggests we park at his house and stay to watch State of Origin tonight and gave us the use of his Range Rover for the afternoon.
After dinner and before the game begins we give his pool table a workout. I have not played for years and would not consider myself a skilled player – ever. Tonight I won all 4 games. The force was with me. The force was also with the Qld side, running out winners 28 – 18.
