Tin Can Bay

Tin Can Bay

Another easy drive. Booked into the Kingfisher CP right in the middle of town. Worth the money for the location, shade, and power, me thinks. Talking with the new owners, just 12 months into it, and still enthusiastic and enjoying the lifestyle. Quiet time right now. Time to relax before the silly season.

Tin Can Bay formally Wallu? What da! What's in a name -Shakespeare. How many tourist would come to Wallu to see the dolphins? Surely less. Tin Can Bay sounds far more exotic. The place makes me think of my time in Papua New Guinea. Like PNG it appears to have more than it's fair share of escapees from the mainstream, mis-fits, and dropouts. Nothing against them, just an observation, just sayin'...

Good spot for cycling. A path extends from Norman Point, near where they feed the dolphins that attract the OS tourist, and along The Esplanade to Crab Creek at Toolara. Toolara is a quiet and picturesque area having a nice coffee shop with water views. Hot and humid today but there's usually a sea breeze happening, nice.

Not lots of choice in Tin Can Bay but most of the essentials are here or not all that far away at Cooloola Bay.  

The TCB Yacht Club -great view
