Next morning the weather had improved slightly so we took the chance for a walk around Latrobe. The main street is very long and contains some nice old buildings.
This lovely old home now houses an accounting business.
There were some interesting memorials in the grounds of the Civic building.
A nice stone bridge across a creek in the middle of town but I doubt there is much age to it.
An immature European Goldfinch.

We had booked our car in for a service at Shearwater Mechanical on Monday and planned to stay two nights at the Lions Caravan Park in Port Sorell nearby. It was a short drive from Latrobe and we were soon parked up on a lovely large grassy site. We went for a drive north through Shearwater to Hawley Beach and the end of the road. At an off leash dog beach we had some good views of the estuary.
Looking north towards the ocean.
The beach just a few metres from our campsite.

As appointed, we dropped our car at the mechanic and then walked back towards town where we had arranged to meet a lady who has an interest in moving to RV Homebase where we live on the Fraser Coast. We enjoyed a good chat at a local cafe and then wandered back towards the mechanic and settled at a nearby shopping centre to await the call telling us the car was ready to collect. By 12.15 we were mobile again, refuelled and did some grocery shopping before heading back to the caravan park and another walk on the beach.
Our site at the caravan park. The beach is just behind the row of shrubs at the rear of the van.

Another short drive to move to our next camp at Bakers Point in the Narawntapu National Park, across the estuary from Port Sorell.
The tide was well out by the time we had set up camp. This white-faced Heron was foraging for lunch.
Looking back across the estuary towards Port Sorell and our previous nights’ caravan park. This is the same jetty is in yersteday’s photo.
Our campsite is perfect, tucked away among the bushes.

We booked our site here for 6 nights and have no plans to drive anywhere so there won’t be too many photos.
The skies were threatening but I still managed to get my load of washing dry.
