We have been trying to get to Mackay since the beginning of the year and we finally made it!!! Yippee!!! Took off this morning after a lovely breakfast of Spam and hard eggs (Chris does not like the way they do eggs here so I promised him I would make him some today!). It seemed to take forever but we got here and checked into our motel–same one we have stayed at several times before and it is clean and nice and right off the beach so we like it a lot. We took a little nap and then went out to explore the beach and were amazed at how much sand there was!!! The tide was out and it was crazy how far out we could walk! Gonna have to do some research on that one and see what the change is —we walked and walked and just enjoyed the cooler breezes. Pretty much a perfect day in my book!
Tomorrow more of the same!!! I imagine we will do some exploring tomorrow and go to one of the National parks that we have been to before. There is just a lot to see here and we wanted to spend a little bit of time down here again since it has been so long since Chris has been able to come down to the mill here. I will post more tomorrow if we find anything exciting!!!
