Day 38 - Through mudflats to the sand mines

Day 38 - Through mudflats to the sand mines
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

THE STORM season officially ends this week, although with the climate change, storms can still hit in April and even into May, but these are increasingly rare. There is still a fair bit of rain falling and will continue to do so until the May/June westerlies hit bringing on the short winter. The nights are beginning to get cooler ending the long summer and the days are getting shorter, though this change has been very difficult to notice. This week also marks April Fools day, and there are plenty of pranks pulled in the morning of the first of April each year.

Today's hike takes me from the small sandy peninsula slowly progressing through the mangroves in more difficult conditions than yesterday, following the coast as far as I can before the tide comes in confining me to the tangles of mangroves. I eventually reach Dunwich not long before a surprise thunderstorm hits. I seek shelter in the town's shops before setting up camp at the local camping ground.
