We have arrived in Townsville, our previous home up until early 2015. Arriving here logs the caravan as having travelled about 1300 km or 800 miles. We are staying in a caravan park close to where we used to live as we want to visit people in the area while here. This time we have chosen a grass site rather than one with a slab as the slabs sites are near the front by the road and the grass sites are at the rear in a quieter location.

After our arrival and setup yesterday we went to the Willows shopping centre to collect some food supplies and to locate the optometrist who we collect our glasses from on Monday, Since I was last here over five years ago the complex has grown a lot. The most impressive part I think is the under cover parking where they have covered existing outdoor parking spaces with shelters built using solar panels.
