camping behind dunes near Eli Creek Fraser Island
with relatives first time on Fraser Island. Set up of Camper Trailer-
ours with all the gear we normally have our shower, toilet etc plus 2
tents one with sister and brother in law and 2 nieces 11 year old twins
and 1 nephew 23 year old.
We had been
camping for approx 1 week well behind a high dune because of 30knot
winds forecast for the week. Our shower surround which we used to keep
the toilet bucket in during the day was getting old and with the high
winds starting to deteriate we decided to put down at night so that we
would have a usable shower cover when needed.
Breakfast time all sitting down to a lovely cooked breakfast
and me dressed in one piece togs needs to go to the toilet so with
instructions to everyone that they were to stay put where they were
behind the side of the camper annex, I went about the business that was
needed but of course toilet out in the open. Females with one piece togs
would know what I mean having to virtually stip down to nothing. As we
were camped for nearly a week with no one going on track we were camped
on did not even think about toilet out in the open with own party being
told to stay put.
Next minute hear a car coming along the beach then
thinking to myself the car did not sound that it was on the beach side
of the dune and end up looking straight in the car of very surprised men
on the track in front of me. Don't know who was laughing so much , was
it me or my family or the poor unsuspecting party in the ute. Certainly
was a camping trip to remember.
