Day 62 – 16/7/2019 on this Midlife Adventure

It was time to say goodbye to Bundaberg, Qld and head further north, a short 150km north to the town of Seventeen Seventy, Qld or more commonly 1770.

Named for the fact that Captain James Cook landed here in May 1770 his second stop on the Australian continent.


The nearby headland is has a short walk with great views.

The nearby area is popular with fishermen although a bit too rocky for me there are some good channels in the near the caravan park.

Other than a quick shop in the nearby Angus Waters, Qld today was spent reading and relaxing with my new book. My Life as a Leyland Brother and Beyond by Mal Leyland.

I had heard that the sunset from the beach was very spectacular and having now witnessed it… it was.

Sunset and kids playing in the water.

Then the sun slowly slips down over the horizon, it is nice that the sun disappears over the horizon into the water a sight I wont see again until Darwin, NT.


This Midlife Adventure is never boring and I’m enjoying every day.
